2K Games working on BioShock 2 and new X-Com game

Posted on Tuesday, December 04 2007 @ 07:05:26 CET by

Bit Tech reports 2K Games is forming a new game studio to develop BioShock 2. This game won't be from the hand of Ken Levine but the development will be done by many of the folks who worked on the first BioShock game:
According to industry insider Surfer Girl Reviews Star Wars and a job posting up on Gamasutra, the new game won't be headed up by Ken Levine, the man responsible for BioShock the first. Instead, it'll be made by a new 2K studio which is being founded specifically for the task.

The new studio, 2K Marin, is being founded by the remnants of the dev team from the first BioShock. Apparently, not many of the original staff wanted to work with Ken after BioShock.

"2K Boston is still recovering - a good chunk of the BioShock team did not want to work with Ken ever again, and 2K definitely understood the sentiment and let them set up a new studio so that they can make Bioshock 2, leaving Ken with Project X. A good chunk of the other senior 2K Boston people who were sick of Ken but didn't move to San Francisco ended up scattering to other AAA developers instead. In Quincy, they're essentially rebuilding a team from almost scratch again." Says Surfer Girl, who got tipped off by an anonymous source.
Ken Levine will stay on in 2K Boston and is starting on a new X-Com game called Project X.
