Polygon tried to get a statement from Take Two Interactive regarding upcoming or future plans for Bioshock. However, the company remains noncomittal on the state of the franchise.
Ken Levine has previously stated that, following the shuttling of Irrational Games, he was giving over the reins of the franchise to Take Two, while he himself moves on to other projects with a smaller team.
We’re quoting the full statement Take Two gave Polygon below:
BioShock is one of our most beloved and critically acclaimed franchises, and we are indebted to Ken and the talented team at Irrational Games for their contributions to the series with BioShock and BioShock Infinite; the latter being one of the most decorated games of 2013.
The BioShock universe remains a rich creative canvas for many untold stories, and we look forward to exploring the next BioShock experience.
