The official 2K Games United Kingdom Twitter account has started a campaign to tease BioShock fans, but it isn't giving much away. Over the last two days it has uploaded the same image twice; firstly asking us to "discuss" it and secondly teasing us "Oooo, what COULD this mean?!". Well, we'd appreciate a bit more to go on. The second tease could at least have used a different image, as an extra clue.

The picture from these two Twitter teases comes from the original BioShock game. It is a detail from one of the adverts you will see within Rapture, publicising a kind of strip club 'Eve's Garden at Poseidon Plaza'. The advert illustration shows a golden haired nude lady holding a large apple with "Come bite the Apple!" inscribed upon it.

What could we get in terms of new games? Well as CVG points out, BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2 was the final chapter in Booker and Elizabeth's story. Also Irrational Games announced its closure in Feb this year, except for the retaining of a small team of 15 developers. So it's tricky to know what development team would bring a new game to fruition...

As mentioned in the intro – we don't have a lot to go on with these two teases but from various suggestions I have read we could be seeing a tease for:

  • HD remixes of the BioShock series
  • The BioShock games being ported to new platforms such as the next gen consoles or PS Vita
  • A new Free-to-Play BioShock game set in a mermaid strip club

Do any HEXUS readers have any ideas about what might be coming thanks to these teasers? Also what BioShock related announcement would readers like to see?

That free to play sounds interesting… :P

Or is that pay to win?
I'm not sure, personally, whether the original BioShock games need a reboot. They still hold up pretty well.

Maybe the PS Vita turn-based game is getting a release after all…

A reboot? Probably not, but I'd still like it if bioshock 1 was less buggy. Haven't been able to complete it yet because there's at least one major bug every 1-2 levels. Ah well.
Hmmmmm, Shield Tablet support for the Bioshock franchise?
