Sinclair Solutions' Top 5 Rejected Plasmids For BioShock 2

Though Take-Two Interactive said BioShock 2 sales were "slower than expected," the game was profitable for them and Take-Two leadership has clarified that they don't intend to leave the franchise behind. With 2K Marin working on X-Com, however, what does that mean for BioShock's future

"2K Marin is working on X-Com," said Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick, in response to an analyst question during a financial call about the company's second quarter results today. "As it relates to BioShock, we think BioShock is still one of the most important franchises in the history. We intend to support the franchise. It [another BioShock game] doesn't have to be at 2K Marin."

Following the success of the original BioShock, Take-Two declared intentions to develop several sequels to the game. Irrational Games then began work on a still-unannounced new game, while 2K Marin was spun off to develop BioShock 2. The game received a largely positive reception.

Zelnick said Take-Two is currently focused on providing additional downloadable content for BioShock 2. So far, the content has added to BioShock 2's multiplayer, but the company has promised extensions of the single-player world down the line. No announcements have been made.
