Set before the collapse of Rapture

It's inevitable that they'll be a sequel to Bioshock, one of 2007's most atmospheric and original shooters, sooner or later - which is exciting enough in itself - but it's also been suggested that Irrational Games will not be creating a straightforward sequel and will instead develop a prequel, set before the destruction of the hidden city of Rapture.

The rumour comes from Czech website, Hrej.cz who claim that Bioshock 2 is currently under development at the 2K Games' Czech studio (the team currently working on Mafia II) and will be released in 2009.

According to the story of Bioshock, Rapture was constructed as an ideal society for a hand-picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, but collapsed under the weight of its own idealism. The thought of exploring the neon-lit metropolis before it was destroyed is an exciting one and if Irrational put as much effort into the visual aspect of the game as they did with the stunning looking Bioshock, exploring Rapture is going to be a truly spectacular experience.

2K Games has declined to comment on the rumour.

Seeing Rapture in all its former glory would be all kinds of awesome. Here's hoping this'll happen! :)
I hope they scrap the crappy protection system that only let you install it x times….

Or just make it a straight to dl game, and release it on steam
This should be interesting seeing Rapture in its former glory. Hopefully this one will be playtested to the max and we won't see old bugs resurfacing. Love Bioshock even though it is extremely buggy, currently playing through again at the min and it has me hooked more than ever!
i'm concerned about ken levine not being involved :O_o1:

i said this when bioshock came out, i'd love to play it in an rpg style or a “ship” type game.
