In a press release, developer 2K announced today that a new BioShock game is currently in development. However, the title (which has been in the works for 4 years at this point) won't be released for "several years."
Sam Medley,

Early this morning, games developer 2K announced that work has started on “the next iteration of the globally acclaimed BioShock franchise.” 2K also confirmed that the title has been in development for years and likely won’t be released for at least a few more.

In a press release, 2K announced that the fourth entry in the widely praised BioShock series is currently in development at Cloud Chamber, a new in-house studio under 2K based in Novato, California.

We reported on the development of BioShock 4 (code-named Parkside) in April of 2018. That report was based on information from Kotaku, which appears to have been corroborated. The new game has been in development since 2015, though most of the early version (pre-2017) was scrapped when the game was moved from an Austin-based team to Cloud Chamber.

2K has stated that the new BioShock title won’t be out for several years, so BioShock fans shouldn’t hold their breaths. Each entry in the BioShock series brings a fresh take on the first-person shooter genre and excellent narrative; hopefully, BioShock 4 will be worth the wait.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
