BioShock may have five sequels

While BioShock 2 was just announced last March, 2K Games president reveals that BioShock 3, 4, 5, and 6 could be on the way.

MCV reports that 2K Games Global President Christoph Hartmann says that we could see as many as five sequels in the BioShock series, comparing the potential lifespan of their dark FPS franchise to that of the Star Wars film series.

Hartmann's statements come less than a year after BioShock 2 was officially announced in March 2008. BioShock 2: Sea of Dreams was first unveiled to the world in the form of a teaser trailer where a Little Sister holding a stuffed Big Daddy watched a suspiciously Rapture-like metropolis made of sand rise out of the ocean.

Hartmann reveals how we may see BioShock 6 eventually, saying that "if we spin it the right way and get the right twist of innovation, we can make six parts of it, as Star Wars did."

The company's president also talks about how they won't be cashing-in on BioShock's popularity because they don't want to ruin the series for fans as the Matrix did.

"For Bioshock, because it's so story driven, the question obviously arises: how long can you do it without turning into The Matrix?," says Christoph Hartmann.

"The first Matrix was great, the second one was weird and the third one, you thought: 'Who [making this] is on crack and who isn't?'."

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
