After Bioshock Infinite and the dissolution of its developer Irrational Games, the Bioshock series seemed to have come to a natural end. But, as is often the case, popular series tend not to lie dormant for all too long.

As such, it likely won't come as too much of a surprise to hear that 2K has now announced a brand new Bioshock game. The details are few and far between, but what I can tell you is that the new game will be developed by the freshly-founded Cloud Chamber studio which will have offices in both the San Francisco Bay Area and Montréal, Québec.

You can read the full announcement over at the 2K website, though to be perfectly honest, there's nothing too interesting there. After all, the Bishock game is still very early in its development, so there are no story details, screenshots, gameplay trailers or anything of the sort.

That only leaves us with speculation, and personally, I really do hope we don't go back to Rapture once again. Every single Bishock game was either set there or had a DLC that brought you back underwater, and I do believe it's high time for a bit of change in scenery. Bioshock Infinite's floating city of Columbia was quite fascinating to explore, so I'd definitely be in favor of Cloud Chamber going wild with their ideas and just creating something entirely new and exciting! Whether that will actually happen, I suppose only time will tell.

Once some actual information arrives I'll make sure to let you know, but until then you might want to sit tight as it'll likely be a few years before the new Bioshock game finally materializes.
