2K Got a New Studio and Revealed Next BIOSHOCK is in Production

By  | 


2K made a huge announcement. First, the company revealed that they were opening a new game development studio that will be called Cloud Chamber. This studio will have two locations to build up with one Novato, CA and the other in Montréal, Québec. While this is huge news on its own, what came next is probably fans will get crazy over.

2K also took the time in the press release to announce that Cloud Chamber is working on a new BioShock game. We don’t know anything about the game as of yet, but David Ismailer from 2K did say:

“As we continue growing our product portfolio, we remain inspired by opportunities to invest further in our valuable IP, great people and their collective, long-term potential. BioShock is one of the most beloved, critically praised and highest-rated franchises of the last console generation*. We can’t wait to see where its powerful narrative and iconic, first-person shooter gameplay head in the future with our new studio team at Cloud Chamber leading the charge.”

Cloud Chamber will be headed by Kelly Gillmore with Ken Schachter as Studio Manager in Montréal. Gillmore released the following statement:

“We founded Cloud Chamber to create yet-to-be-discovered worlds – and their stories within – that push the boundaries of what is possible in the video game medium. Our team believes in the beauty and strength of diversity, in both the makeup of the studio and the nature of its thinking. We are a deeply experienced group of game makers, including many responsible for BioShock’s principal creation, advancement and longstanding notoriety, and honored to be part of the 2K family as stewards of this iconic franchise.”
