‘I’m not involved’ – BioShock creator regarding next game in the series
Ken Levine isn’t returning for the fourth BioShock from the sounds of things.
During an interview with Arcade Attack, Levine spoke a bit about Bioshock 4, which is in development at Cloud Chamber Studios — a team made up of many veterans from the older BioShock games. However, Levine isn’t one of them.
“I’m not involved with it at all. I don’t want to do half measures. I never want to be half in half out,” Levine said. “I wish them the best. I know as much about the game as anybody else, essentially. And I’ll play it as a player when it comes out.”
Despite Levine’s tenure as a director on both BioShock and BioShock Infinite, this won’t be the first time he hasn’t worked on a game in the series. BioShock 2, which many fans herald as the best one, had zero involvement from Levine as well.
Not since BioShock Infinite in 2013 have we seen a new entry in the series, and it was also Levine’s last game.
Levine is working on a brand new project at Ghost Story Games these days. However, recent reports claim that the studio is likely in trouble. Or if nothing else, it’s seen a lot of delays. However, plenty of games got hit with the delay stick and still turned out great.
