From Oops Leaks:
Concept artists, environment artists, modelers, VFX specialists and level designers who worked on Watch Dogs: Legion, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Mafia 3, and so on are involved in the creation of the game. I didn’t mean that the game will be made by their teams completely.
I cannot know the relationship between Sony and 2K, but I know that the development of the game is aimed to release on both PC and console, so I cannot confirm the exclusivity of the new #Bioshock for PS5.
A slide shared by Oops Leaks suggests that BioShock Isolation will feature two cities unlike its predecessors, which were situated firmly in Rapture or Columbia. Another reveals that developer Cloud Chamber Games is drawing inspiration from classic works such as Citizen Kane.

There might be two cities with radically different ideology, one of them located underground right below the other, both sharing a “flipside” border zone with an unleashed “vertical war”. pic.twitter.com/Cy6fddJmV1
During the pitching of the game, and this was no later than 2019, the team named the projects that inspired them to create such a concept. Among them are such books as The City and the City, We, Shantaram, and the Citizen Kane movie. pic.twitter.com/l0KC0CW2yn— Oops Leaks (@oopsleaks) November 29, 2021
BioShock Isolation’s release could be complemented by a remastered version of the original. That’s according to NVIDIA’s leaked list of GeForce NOW games, which includes entries for a “BioShock 2022” and “BioShock RTX remaster.”
