2K Say That Bioshock Is Still A "Really Important" Franchise For Them


When Irrational Games broke up after the release of Bioshock Infinite, the future of the franchise seemed to be in flux. With the iconic studio now out of the picture, where exactly did that leave Bioshock going forward?

We still don't know that answer, but perhaps we will not so long from now. Gamespot reported that at the Technology, Media, & Telecom Conference in New York 2K Games CEO, Strauss Zelnick spoke about Bioshock saying:

It's a really important intellectual property for the company. And while I don't have any announcements to make, yes, it's a really important franchise for us.

He also revealed that 25 million copies have been sold in the franchise, with 11 million being Bioshock Infinite alone. That is huge for a first person, single player only shooter.

While it won't have the same creatives behind it, I welcome more Bioshock content. Considering how Infinite ended, there is a ton of potential now to explore in that universe. I'd love to see that mined
