Is BioShock 4 confirmed?

BioShock 4 is currently being developed by Cloud Chamber – a studio founded and owned under the 2K publishing label. The studio is led by former Firaxis Games veteran developer Kelley Gilmore.

In June 2013, Levine had been confirmed to be writing the script for a new film version of the dystopian science fiction novel Logan’s Run. However, he was later dropped from the project.

On February 18, 2014, Levine announced that Irrational Games would be closing down, with fifteen members of the staff to follow Levine to focus on digital only, narrative-driven games for Take-Two. Levine stated in a 2016 interview that the stress of managing Infinite’ s development had affected his health and personal relationships, and rather than stay on to lead an even larger BioShock game, opted to depart from it. Levine’s current project involves a concept of “Narrative Legos” that can be used to create an endlessly-replayable story-driven video game.

In April 2016, Levine stated he was working with Interlude to write and produce the pilot episode for an interactive, live-action series based on The Twilight Zone, which will be published by CBS.
