BioShock: The Collection for Nintendo Switch Leaked

A recent leak on Taiwanese rating board suggests BioShock: The Collection for Nintendo Switch is coming soon.

Right after recent confirmation from publisher 2K Games of a new BioShock game being in works under developer Cloud Chamber, series fans are excited about this acclaimed first-person shooter franchise once again in years.

Lately, a leak from Taiwanese Ratings Board shows BioShock: The Collection for Nintendo Switch is rated in Taiwan. There are individual listings for Switch release of BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite but all without any launch dates.

This definitive collection was originally released back in 2016 for Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms as a bundle of remastered versions of BioShock trilogy including all bonus contents and related single-player DLC packs.

There was rumor for past few years that 2K is secretly working on next installment of the series, which has been revealed to be true earlier. Maybe a reintroduction to older titles is their strategy of renewing players' interest in BioShock saga.

Among many notable key-features of these titles, multiplayer mode of BioShock 2 would not likely to be included though. Currently, titular remastered collection for Switch has been listed on shooter genre with no other major details.

Taiwanese ratings board generally serves as an equivalent of ESBR in video game market region for Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. Often times, leaks discovered on their website eventually turns into an official announcement.

Nintendo usually showcase all of their upcoming third-party Switch titles ahead of release at Nintendo Direct video presentation. It is also possible for all three games to make their debut on Switch console as individual release.

From BioShock of 2007 to 2013's Infinite, all three games of the series were developed by Irrational Games. 2K Games didn't clarify whether their latest title in development is a mainline entry or a reboot but it surely is a significant one.

New BioShock Game in Development by Cloud Chamber

2K Games confirms new BioShock game being developed by Cloud Chamber under their publishing label.

Last year, a leak from news editor Jason Schreier of video game website Kotaku suggested that a new BioShock game titled "Parkside" was secretly being developed for some time in a studio under developer/publisher 2K Games.

Turns out that leak was very much legit and recently, 2K has officially confirmed that one of their newly-formed internal game development studios, Cloud Chamber is working on next chapter of BioShock for years indeed.

Since next-generation of consoles from Microsoft and Sony are coming next year, it is highly likely for them to release the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett with a probable inclusion or exclusion of PC platform for future.

According to reports, upcoming BioShock title actually went under development phase back in 2015 but was rebooted later and started once again in 2017, when 2K Games finally decided to employ an in-house studio to get the job done.

Given the timeframe for this news to come out all of a sudden, players can hope to get some sort of reveal or official tease through an image at Sony's State of Play presentation soon or at The Game Awards 2019 within a few days.

It's been six years since BioShock Infinite came out in 2013 as last release of the series and old-school fans are still waiting for a new game. However, neither 2K Games nor Cloud Chamber has confirmed if next BioShock game would be a mainline title.

We are not much sure about recommending Killing Floor, Soma, XCOM 2 and Zombie Army Trilogy from the same bid though. Both survival horror title Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster and original Resident Evil HD Remaster goes up on 60%.

The base game of Dead by Daylight has offered 50% and there is a bunch of add-on content from the game as well as Dying Light that put forward 33-35% at best. We leave these completely on you. Outlast 2 however, is a nice catch at a whopping 70%.

Titles like 7 Days to Die (64%), Dead Rising 4 (30%), For Honor (33%), Killing Floor 2 (67%), Prey (50%), Resident Evil 7 (35%) and Vampyr (33%) are either not worth going for at this reduction rate because they are worth the wait for a greater deal.

We also opted out from picking some of the games from the sale even though they had a serious discount slapped on them, simply because they weren't worth the bucks for this festive season. Nevertheless, you don't need to be influenced by us and can still pick them up if you really want to.

Our suggestion is that you get Darkest Dungeon (-70%), Killing Floor 2 (-67%) and L4D2 (-80%) from the top seller list for the best value of your money. Then if you are ready to spend more, we would like to add a few more, from which you can even drop some.

Whether you pick or leave Friday the 13th: The Game (-85%) is up to you but try to consider picking from Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Castlevania: LoS 2, Darksiders II, Limbo and Zombie Army Trilogy as all of these five games are on 80% off.

New BioShock Game Reportedly in Development

Many gamers would agree that BioShock from developer 2K Games was a very unique entry among all other first-person shooter game franchises. 2007 saw the debut of the first game, then BioShock 2 came in 2010 and BioShock Infinite released in 2013. So, it's been five years since the last game of the series was released but we bet many fans are more than ready for a new installment at any time. With that, we currently have news that a new BioShock title is currently in development.

2k studio developing new bioshock
New BioShock Game Reportedly in Development

All the titles from the original series took place into the underwater city of Rapture, which was meant to be a utopia for elites. People become addicted to a substance called ADAM that grants superhuman abilities but also slowly drives them insane. Little orphan girls called "Little Sisters" were used to harvest ADAM and they were protected by giant robot like sentries nicknamed "Big Daddies". Third game of the series, BioShock Infinite took the adventure to the vintage sky city of Columbia.

News editor Jason Schreier for video game website Kotaku was recently working on a story with developer Hangar 13 about Mafia III, when he came to know about this information. There is a secret neighboring studio Parkside, currently working on an unannounced project and it is a new BioShock game. Now, this has come to many fans as relief as many of them thought that their series has ended with the fall of developer Irrational Games.



Although CEO of Take-Two Interactive, Strauss Zelnick has assured in 2015 that it wouldn't mean the end for BioShock series and they will continue it in future, they have not done anything convincing till date to back that up. However, it looks like Take-Two is making good on their word by bringing a brand-new BioShock game teaming up with publisher 2K Games. Already sold more than 25 million units, this steampunk first-person shooter was also being considered for a movie adaptation but ultimately failed though.

Officially, 2K Games have yet to confirm the validity of this news and there has been no statement from their end yet. With the release of BioShock: The Collection featuring remastered edition of BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the series made it's comeback in 2016 but that was it. There was no more news from them ever since and the entirety of this franchise are put into ice. If they are truly bringing back the series, then we would love to see them explore some new location for their fictional paradise this time.
