The purported setting and time period of the fourth BioShock game has leaked.

According to journalist Colin Moriarty, the new BioShock will take place in a fictional Antarctic city during the 1960s. Sources with VGC have corroborated this detail. Cloud Chamber Games, the developer behind the new installment, is also said to be targeting a 2022 release for the game.

“It takes place in a 1960s Antarctic city called Borealis,” Moriarty said in a new Sacred Symbols video that he shared on Patreon yesterday. “[The game is] codenamed ‘Parkside’… I’ve been told that the development team has incredible latitude to get it right. That seems and sounds right to me.”

“Internally the game is very secret and apparently, totally locked up. Apparently the inclination there is that they understand full well that this game will be compared to what [BioShock creator] Ken Levine does. And by the way, [Take-Two] is also publishing Levine’s next game.”

Moriarty’s report suggests that Cloud Chamber Games has distanced itself from the game’s previous code name, which was rumored to be BioShock Isolation. It was also claimed that the game would feature not one, but two cities.
