2K Plans to Keep BioShock Going
Filed under: BIOSHOCK

Ken Levine may have closed down Irrational Games, but it doesn't mean that 2K is ready to let go of the BioShock franchise.

A 2K representative gave the following statement to Game Informer:

BioShock is one of our most beloved and critically acclaimed franchises, and we are indebted to Ken and the talented team at Irrational Games for their contributions to the series with BioShock and BioShock Infinite; the latter being one of the most decorated games of 2013. The BioShock universe remains a rich creative canvas for many untold stories, and we look forward to exploring the next BioShock experience.

I'm not entirely sure this is a great idea. I loved BioShock, but I'm also a fan of letting a story end when it's supposed to end. Milking something just because it was extremely successful in the past isn't always the best answer.

Now if this means that they'll be moving forward on whatever idea Levine had for BioShock Vita, then I'm all ears.

I love Bioshock, but every franchise should end after a few games. Don't milk them forever!

I disagree. Look at Might & Magic. Up to 10 parts and most were decent. Or Ultima. Up to 9 parts and most were considered great games. Or Wizardry. 8 parts and most of them are considered classics.

The problem is not the milking. The problem is the lack of creativity and progress. Back in the days of the above franchises we usually had great progress from game to game thanks to technological advancements.

Nowadays we have lame ass consoles holding everything back. What we need is MS to shut down their Xbone division and refocus on PC gaming. Crank out an annual DirectX release 12, 13, 14... and so on, every time with new features for moar awesome sauce. Then let AMD and nVidia compete like mad to fully utilize these new feature sets with at least annual GPU releases pushing the poor silicon to da max.

That's how we could easily go from one title in a franchise to the next w/o getting tired of franchises so quickly. The problem today is that thanks to fucking buttfuck consoles we're forced to play the same game over and over with only minimal progress from no. 1 to no. 2 to no. 3 and so on.
  Vodoo: complete and absolute truth.
