BioShock 4 Will Reportedly Be Set in Antarctica

Matt Lorrigan

BioShock 4 will be set within a '60s city in Antarctica, according to a new report.

The new BioShock game, which is being developed by studio Cloud Chamber under 2K Games, will apparently have connections to previous BioShock titles, and will be set in the fictional south pole city of Borealis, according to a report from the Sacred Symbols podcast.

The report has been corroborated by VGC, with the information on an Antarctic setting matching what its sources have said, with the game targeting a 2022 release.

A fourth BioShock game was originally in development at developer Certain Affinity for around five years, apparently, before being binned, with development restarting at Cloud Chamber. Job postings at the studio have hinted towards an open world setting, as well as RPG systems and and an “emergent sandbox world”.

Could we see BioShock 4 revealed at The Game Awards later this week? We'll certainly be keeping an eye just in case.

  • Omg so hyped
  • "Open World" set in the largest desert and one of the most inhospital areas of our planets. x)
  • Hopefully this will be PS4 and PS5. At least that picture makes it look like Elizabeth will be in the game.
  • Just so we are clear the 2022 release will probably be for the summer then get delayed to a winter release date and actually come out in March of 2023. So looking forward to this in 2023.
  • It will be terrible, you can count on that.
  • Hopefully it will be a return to Bioshock 1 & 2. Infinite had a great story, and the colorful contrast to the previous games was nice, but it lacked the customizing the first two had. I know you could equip clothing with different perks, but the first two had a great way of being able to use environmental hazards with the right abilities to really mix things up. Had a great time experimenting with those two.
  • @Sedition, I can remember Infinite also had that while using Tears no?

    OT: Although hyped for a new Bioshock, I'm very hesistant without the original developers. Maybe some nice gameplay can take my doubts away.
