Rumours: 2K Games and Cloud Chamber are having trouble developing the new BioShock and may delay the announcement

2K Games confirmed the development of a new BioShock more than two years ago, but the game has not yet been officially launched. The announcement may come later than planned: Oops Leaks insiders reported serious problems in the Studio Cloud Chamber tasked with working on the project.

According to Oops Leaks, Cloud Chamber lost about 40 employees, including key developers. Some left the studio voluntarily, others were fired for various reasons. Either way, he emphasizes, it’s more about that “small restructuring” than about production hell. The team is already recruiting new specialists. Due to line-up changes, the announcement may be postponed to a later date.

According to an insider, 2K Games is unhappy with the current status of the project and the pace of production. “However, based on Take-Two Interactive’s latest financial report, the game is still scheduled for release in late 2024.”he wrote.

Previously, Oops Leaks revealed unofficial details about the game itself. Last November, an insider revealed that it is subtitled “Isolation” and powered by Unreal Engine 5 (which is also indicated by Cloud Chamber jobs) and that its events are taking place in Play two warring cities on top of each other. At the time, the announcement was reportedly scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.

Information from Oops Leaks contradicts information from other sources, but the discrepancies can be explained by the different ages of the information. In December 2021, former IGN and Kinda Funny editor Colin Moriarty revealed that the game is set in the 1960s in the Antarctic town of Borealis and is scheduled for release in 2022.

Cloud Chamber ads also mentioned open world, advanced AI, “Live” Environments, first person shooting, cinematic cutscenes and a dialogue system. Rumor has it that development started about four years ago. Target platforms are unknown, but last May insider Nick Baker (Nick Baker) said that the project will be made exclusively for the PlayStation (possibly temporarily). The game is developed by experts who worked on Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed, Battlefield, the first three BioShock and according to Oops Leaks, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Mafia 3 and Watch Dogs: Legion.

Simultaneously with the release of the Oops Leaks tweets, Neftlix announced the production of a feature film based on the series.
