    It was well designed in its own unique style.

    Nothing wrong with expanding possibilities, locations and story. Getting stack underwater forever is boring.

    We'll probably get to pay real money for plasmids this time around...o_O

    My bet is on a 1960s moonbase (or even Mars) as location...that or some arctic region...

    I wonder how likely it is that there will be microtransactions and it will have multiplayer?

    Well, a new Bioshock is welcome, but the way 2k has been doing business lately leaves me slightly worried. A Bioshock game is SP first and foremost. I really hope they won't make it MP-centered, in order to sell lootboxes or skins.

    The plot lost itself in all the dimension-hopping, though. It was a mess by the end of the story. Otherwise I enjoyed the gameplay, but wished for less corridor based level design.

    Saw the article couple days ago. Didnt interest me because ...... "The production will take at least a few years."
    When its a few months away, my attention will perk up a bit more.

    Love Bioshock series, but without Ken Levine writing I can see disappointment written all over this.

    Sounds more like business acquisition than actual wish to make a new game..

    I read rumours of it being cloud based, if so, R.I.P Bioshock :(

    After the third part I'm gonna pass. also for sure it will be bloated with ''microtransactions' (or more like ''macrotransactions'' lol) if even it will be SP game at all...

    I haven't tried Infinity and I'm really hesitant to get it. The first game was so highly praised, but, the twist at the end doesn't make up for what I found to be more of a chore and annoying experience than fun. So, it's hard for me to decide if I should even bother with Infinity, if that has was perceived though the same rose-tinted glasses.

    All that being said, I'm even more hesitant about this new game, since it really seems to scream "cash grab".

    Infinity was OK, but I think it received higher praise than it deserved by many review sites. Aside from reviews, I check out walkthroughs on YT to get a better sense of the gameplay.

    With Infinite i only liked the last DLC , all other stuff was very repetitive.

    Own all the BIOSHOCK games have not completed any of them,just started playing BIOSHOCK Remastered a couple days ago.It looks real good for how old the game is ,and not a stutter to be seen.BIOSHOCK Infinite I could not run that game with the stuttering,hitching and terrible square shadow box.
    New game probably pick it up,got to be better than last one.

    Kinda surprised Ghost Story Games isn't making it, considering they are mostly made up of the previous Irrational Games, of which made Bioshock....
