Bioshock leaker says the next installment could have a female protagonist set in Antarctica.
Although much of the buzz surrounding Bioshock centers on the series’ Netflix adaptation, which now has a director, some people still want to dive back into the series in videogame form.
It’s easy to see why there’s a demand for a new title with 2013’s BioShock Infinite still in production, even though Ken Levine won’t direct it.
A leaker now wants to satisfy some of that desire. He posted a massive info dump about the new Bioshock entry currently being created by Cloud Chamber. It contains a lot of exciting ideas and will be fascinating if they are accurate.
Do you find the idea of Bioshock set in colder climates appealing?
The leaker began with the most credible information. He claimed that the new game was initially released in early 2022. However, this wasn’t possible due to “staff cuts within the studio.” According to the leaker, the title is now released sometime before 2024.
In terms of the game itself, they claim that: “It’s still Bioshock, with the same concept that doesn’t try to massively reinvent/rethink/reboot the basics of previous games,” with two Soviet cities located under the ice of Antarctica being suggested as a possible setting.
A female protagonist could be one of the possible characters. She would fight in a new combat system that has been “diversified” with unique abilities and could adapt to different terrains. There may also be cameos from familiar characters from previous games.
The leaker warns that the story and details are not valid. He advises taking these details with a massive grain of salt. This information was not confirmed by anyone I could find.
Despite this, the thread provoked some interest among users in the subreddit r/GamingLeaksAndRumours, with ARCHOUDRY saying: “It’s been too long without a Bioshock, really hope this game delivers.”
