According to the latest rumors, Bioshock 4 could not see the light of day until the end of 2024. This comes from information from “Oops Leaks“, which states that the development studio has lost a lot of staff. Among them were also lead developers who were significantly involved in the development of the first-person shooter.
It’s only been a few weeks since the first information about Bioshock 4 surfaced. According to this, another offshoot of the popular Bioshock series is in development at 2K Games, even if there is no official information from the publisher or the developer studio yet. According to the leaks at the time, the game should be called Bioshock Isolation and was originally announced and presented extensively in the first quarter of 2022. But something could have changed with the plans.
Bioshock 4: New rumors about the release
According to Twitter user Oops Leaks, the release of Bioshock Isolation has been delayed. The user had already leaked the name, the logo, and a presentation of the game last year. Now it says that fans have to be patient until the release: the new Bioshock should be released by the end of 2024 at the latest. The reason is that the company lost 40 employees, including lead developers.
“Oops Leaks” states that 2K Games is not satisfied with the current state and speed of development of the game. However, the release by the end of 2024 should be certain. As always, such early information should be treated with caution. Bioshock Isolation was previously rumored to use Unreal Engine 5. It now remains to be seen when 2K Games will lift the curtain and unveil the latest installment in the Bioshock series to the general public.
