It sounds like 2K Games' dormant BioShock series could be making a long overdue comeback soon, with a so-called "top-secret studio" now working on an unannounced new entry in the series. But during his time at Hangar 13, Schreier learned that next door a "top-secret" 2K studio was hard at work on the next entry in the Bioshock franchise. Many devs from Hangar 13 have moved on or joined the Park Side studio and everyone was kept in dark until it was revealed that the game they are working on is BioShock.

While nothing has been (officially) announced, Schreier has confirmed the presence of a BioShock title on the horizon, backed up by anecdotal evidence of hush-hush talk when the topic of a new title would inevitably crop up among staff. He claims that a new BioShock is in development at a "top-secret" 2K studio located in the San Francisco Bay area. "It was all very tight-lipped". This is because a 2K studio of some kind is now working on the game as we speak. Many developers from Hangar 13 who tried to hop over to work on Parkside were not able to find a position. "They're trying to be really smart about figuring out what the core thing is". The news comes as part of a new Kotaku report that details some of this issues that both plagued Mafia III during development and the studio post-launch. "They're careful about not falling into the same problem every studio has, where they have too many people and nothing for them to do".

Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of 2K Games parent company Take-Two Interactive, told investors that the company plans to publish a "highly-anticipated new title from one of 2K's biggest franchises" sometime in the next 12 months.
