BioShock 4 it was announced a few years ago and since then we have heard almost nothing about it. All we know is that it’s actually being worked on to some extent at Cloud Chamber studios.
As for the setting or even the name, we are completely in the dark. BioShock 4 is what we’re calling the next major entry in the beloved FPS franchise, but it’s very likely to be called something else entirely when it finally releases.
For now, here’s everything we know BioShock 4 yet. As more news comes in (hopefully sooner rather than later), this page will be updated.

- What is this? The fourth installment in the retrofuturistic game series by 2K Games

BioShock 4 release date and platforms
Although we certainly can’t wait for the next one BioShock game, we don’t really know when we’ll get our hands on it.
IN tweet (opens in a new tab) officially announcing a new one BioShock game in 2019, publisher 2K Games announced that work on the next iteration of the BioShock series has begun. Here confirmed that the game would be in development “over the next few years”.
It may not have been the most welcome news, but it gave us an idea of what platforms BioShock 4 would eventually release. With the PS5 and Xbox Series X out now, we’ll almost certainly see a new BioShock released on those platforms (and probably PC as well). Whether the title will arrive on last-gen consoles such as Xbox One and PS4 is less certain; it depends on when the sequel is released.

More job postings suggest the next BioShock will be open world
In a piece of juicy rumor delivered by a new round of job postings, it looks like Cloud Chamber will take over BioShock this time in a different direction, with the developer actively looking for someone “who can weave impactful, character-driven stories in an open world.”
Another job offer also indicates an upcoming one BioShock implementing an “urban crowd system” with a “systemic tribal ecology” backed by “sometimes hostile AI.” It is said that the person who ultimately gets the job will have to “push the frontier of what is possible with interactive crowd systems.”
