Bioshock to Continue Despite Irrational’s Closure

Bioshock to Continue Despite Irrational’s Closure

2K Games confirms series will continue.

Earlier this week, Ken Levine announced that Irrational Games was closing down. So where does that leave the future of some of their best game titles?

When questioned about the possible continuation of the Bioshock franchise, Game Informer received this response via email from a 2K Games representative:

“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.”

But what does this mean for the game? Bioshock fans know the difference between Ken Levine writing fantastic storylines and when he wasn’t involved like for Bioshock 2 which received rather positive reviews but was basically a retelling of the first story with a couple new levels involved.

Do you think 2K Games should carry on the Bioshock legacy, or let it go on a high note with the memories of Bioshock Infinite‘s resounding success?
