Rumor: BioShock 4 is Called BioShock Isolation, to be Announced Q1 2022 - News

2K Games in December 2019 announced it had opened up a new video game studio, Cloud Chamber, that will develop the next game in the BioShock franchise. The studio is a division of 2K Games and is based in Novato, California, with a studio in Montreal, Quebec.

A potential leak via Twitter user @oopsleaks, says the game is titled BioShock Isolation, however, that could change before it is unveiled. The official announcement is said to happen in the first quarter of 2022. 

The game is set in a new area in an isolated dystopian city and is using Unreal Engine 5. It is being developed by Irrational Games veterans and people who worked on Watch Dogs: Legion, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and more.

A leaked slide from a Bioshock pitching presentation suggests there could be two cities with different ideologies. One city would be a free and wealthy society led by a successful entrepreneur. The second city will be isolated underground, separated from the upper world, and is led by a dictator waging a war with the first city. 

A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012. He has expanded his involvement in the gaming community by producing content on his own YouTube channel and Twitch channel dedicated to gaming Let's Plays and tutorials.

Not sure if this will retain the essence of what Bioshock was considering the original team isn't behind it (If I remember correctly.) but I'm not going to lie, I can't help but be a little excited.

I hope ken levine is part of the development, otherwise it might be a pass for me.

Would love to see a new Bioshock, I just hope it doesn't enforce that crappy 2k "launcher", because that launcher broke my XCOM 2 and mods.

The whole overcity and undercity thing reminds me of Taris from KOTOR.

Very reassuring to see people who worked on Mafia 3 are working on this.
