There is the original, retrofuturistic (with borrowed concepts from the survival horror genre) BioShock released in 2007, BioShock 2 (that takes place in the 1960s, in the fictional, underwater city, Rapture) released in 2010, and BioShock Infinite released in 2013. The three games sold over 34 million copies by December 2019. 

The New BioShock:

A new BioShock is in development and a Twitter account called Oops Leaks revealed leaked information about what it may be called. The next BioShock game may be getting built in the Unreal Engine 5 and have the title BioShock Isolation. Oops Leaks’ original tweet stated that an announcement is coming in Q1 2022.

Next Bioshock Game Gets New Details + Title - RUMOR

The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley’s recent tweet reads, “Just saw the final cut of a #thegameawards world premiere we have been working on with a developer for 2.5 years. Truly honored we are entrusted to share this work with the world. 2.5 years sounds like a long time, but summer of 2019 was actually my last global tour to visit developers. I always have so much fun visiting studios and hearing about their projects. Hope to do it again in 2022.”

Take-Two Interactive confirmed that a BioShock game was in development, back in 2019 and a GeForce Now database leak reveals BioShock 2022 on its list. 

The fourth installment to the BioShock series will be set in an isolated dystopian city and is expected to feature two cities. One leak reveals a low resolution image from a slideshow, featuring the words, “there’s always a city.” This could make you recall BioShock Infinite’s storyline introducing lighthouses. Additional information in the slideshow describes the top of the city being a “free and wealthy society” while the bottom is an isolated underground.

BioShock Isolation’s development team includes former Irrational Games developers (which is now known as Ghost Story Games), as well as industry veterans behind titles like Mafia III, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
