    Something is probably making it taking longer than they intended as I remember him saying back in summer 2017 that they will start talking about the game next year (which is supposed to be 2018) but nothing happened until now. The tweet seems to be deleted but I found a french site that reported on it.

    This looks more like a logo for studio than a game.


    Also another trademark by Take Two "31ST UNION": http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=88639004&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch

    Well, will we see something at DoritoPope's award show?

    This seems like it's going to be something weird/slow/confused/troubled all over again like with UA, SSR, SS3... instead of something cool and good, with clear goals, and where the development chugs along at a nice pace.

    Fuarkkkkk just get the old team back together and make something like System Shock 2, or the original plan for BioShock that more closely resembled Shock 2.

    Maybe it is that new San Francisco studio with Bioshock 4 title.

    I am expecting a Bioshock 4 made without Levine's involvement any time now, in fact, I thought something would have been announced long ago when the remaster hype was still going on.

    It would be interesting since they can't just copy the entire story and mechanics of another game like with BioShock 2, they'd have to actually do some legwork, tbh I would bet on it being a) set in Rapture b) more streamlined than ever before c) with an extra helping of mega-cucked present day politics

    I'm quite on the opposite angle.
    a) Infinite set up multiple universes one of which is Rapture
    b) you will be free to explore multiple universes when you unlock them through the lighthouse like a hub
    c) you'll be able to play shooting stuff or with more stealth approach
    d) more RPG nuances

    This is likely. How good or fun it will be? That's another story.

    The problem is fans want Rapture more than anything else, and there is also a lot of clamoring for seeing more of pre-disaster Rapture/Columbine and walking around.
    So there's pressure to either clone the first game or make some walking sim experience set in the pre-disaster worlds that have already been designed, neither of these jives with infinite universes very well.

    Tbh regardless of whether it's fans or cash grabbing publishers that end up having the most influence, odds are we'll get what's essentially a reboot of the first game, Force Awakens style.

    Will Jordan Thomas be the main man behind Bioshock 4? He's the only brain I trust that can handle this glorious franchise.
