BioShock 4 Rumor Warns of “Issues”, Release May be Delayed

Fans still await the new edition of Bioshock   

It’s been a long wait for Bioshock fans and it doesn’t look like they’ll be rewarded for their patience any time soon. It’s been more than two years since the company announced in 2019 that Bio Shock 4 would soon be released.

Generally, it does not take that much time after the announcement to actually release the game. Also, there has been utter silence from the Company and we haven’t seen anything related to the new game.

In such situations there can be two possible scenarios, first would be that it was an untimely announcement. The second case could be that the company has derailed from their planned schedule and are facing some issues in the development of the game.

Bioshock 4 is still passing through the development stage 

Although there is no official word, many sources are reporting that the project is stuck in the development stage. In the initial phase, the project started with some 40 employees. But due to several reasons, a lot of the employees have parted with the project and the organization is looking to hire new personnel.

“New Bioshock has development issues,” reads a tweet from Oops Leaks. “The company lost about 40 employees, including leads. According to my info, 2K is not satisfied with the project’s results and pace.

However, judging by Take-Two Interactive’s (the parent company of 2K) recent financial report, the game is still planned to be released by the end of 2024.

It seems as if the company feels a need to restructure their team as they are not satisfied with the results. They have already begun the process of recruiting new developers and it looks like they are shuffling things up.

However, bringing in new employees means that the whole brainstorming process would have to be repeated and this can take time. It is very much possible that the studio may delay the official release date for the game.

Although, there is no official word on the matter, and as far as the studio is concerned their plan is to complete everything within the expected date.

2K formed a new studio to work on the storyline for the game

It feels as if 2K has big plans for this game, given the storyline they’re trying to execute. This was YouTuber Colin Moriarty’s first take on the storyline, “It takes place in a 1960s Antarctic city called Borealis. [The game’s] codenamed ‘Parkside’… I’ve been told that the development team has incredible latitude to get it right.”

For this very purpose, 2K has announced the formation of the new studio Cloud Chamber. 2K describes the new studio, led by Kelley Gilmore, as “a collective of storytellers eager to push the frontlines of interactive entertainment by making unique, entertaining and thoughtful experiences that engage the world.”

With this new experiment, it will be very important to find people with the right mindset. With the recent layoffs and recruitment and it will be crucial to get the development team on the same track so that the release is flawless.
