Publisher 2K Games has announced a brand new game development studio called Cloud Chamber and their first project will be a brand new entry in the Bioshock franchise.
Don’t expect to get your hands on the game soon though as 2K says this new game “will be in development for the next several years.” This new studio will be split across two locations: one in 2K Games’ San Francisco Bay Area headquarters in Novato, California and one in Montreal, Quebec which makes it 2K Games’ first studio in Canada. Here is what 2K Games president David Ismailer said in the press release:
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 is being run by Kelley Gilmore who has worked in the industry for 22 years and has been apart of 40 games shipping.
