Next BioShock Title Might See The Return Of Multiplayer
This past August saw the 10th anniversary celebration of the BioShock franchise. Originally released for PC and Xbox 360 on August 21, 2007, the series has flourished as players were introduced to the wonderfully haunting city of Rapture, an underwater adventure all in its own. With the most recent installment, Infinite, being such a huge success, fans patiently await any information being released about the next BioShock title.
Thankfully, a recent announcement by Take-Two Interactive may point us in the direction as to what the next entry into the franchise might entail. What some may undoubtedly view as the bad news is that the clue comes in the form of microtransactions. The publisher stated that it intends to ship every future game of theirs with the costly add-ons. Typically, this type of content is almost exclusively associated with a multiplayer aspect, which would lead fans to believe the feature would be included with the next BioShock title.
This isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibility, of course. BioShock 2: Fall of Rapture was the first instance of multiplayer in the franchise, but it has also been the only. It’s been said that the feature was part of Infinite‘s development at one point, but didn’t make the final cut. This may have been due to the mixed reactions that the first occurrence had received.
Either way, the probability of multiplayer coming with the next BioShock title is now a bit higher. We’ll just have to wait for further announcements to know whether or not it becomes reality.
