‘I’m not involved’ – BioShock creator regarding next game in the series

By Kyle Campbell

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.
