I'm gonna have to go with either space or core of the earth. While Space seems pretty cool, a fuckin city inside molten magma (because its underground) would be nuts! What would you guys like to see?

I would like them to not make anymore, and for Ken to make a new ip. Or make on in dino-time, T-Rex splicers.

A non specific middle eastern country set in the present day.

Obviously it is going to be made by a different team - set in Columbia some years after the original Infinite and is going to be called Bioshock: Infinite 2.

Hopefully it will be something different than that, I would like to see something approaching WWII or Cold War era Bioshock.

Cyberspace or cyberpunk sound really good...

I really hope that they don't keep making games that are labeled Bioshock: (insert subtitle here). Stupid marketing people forcing teams to use old IP's.

Ken Levine takes the BioShock series to the faraway land of dubstep. For his latest masterpiece, the team at Irrational build a special controller that connects to your pupils and vibrates for every wub. And every time there's a drop, the controller tricks your brain into thinking it's falling, bringing forth a new age of panic attacks and epilepsy. The controller's named Panic Causes Play or PCP for short.

System. Shock. Three.

You fight in minds with thoughts and the campaign takes place in a stream of consciousness.

I personally would love to see it in an antarctic/freezing wasteland, it would be awesome to see someone similar to Booker attempting to thwart some new antagonist

There oughtent be one.

There's a perfectly cromulent word; oughtent.

#23 Posted by Brenderous (1105 posts) -

There probably won't be another one, but space. They already did it in System Shock, but they'd probably do it again. The "lighthouse" would be the name of a ship or station or something.

Weird, the first thing I thought of was some lava city as well

Everything in this post is spot on.

Bioshock is dead or it should be dead after the end of Infinite.

I saw a picture of a frozen lighthouse yesterday. Build a city into an iceberg, add man and girl. Done.

How about Columbia and Rapture put together? No? OK, I don't like the idea either. I was actually thinking about it as well, and I don't know where they'd take it next; I don't imagine they'd do another space station since there's already System Shock 2, but maybe. Perhaps an unknown, hidden landmass, somewhat similar to Azura in Gears of War. That'd certainly not seem ideal initially since it's not in the sky or under the ocean, but that could be an idea. This is all if there is going to be another Bioshock.

If they do another one, I really dont care. Some one just tell them to stop dumbing down their gameplay systems. All I ask for is a little added depth.

And make it less linear.

#32 Edited by CircleNine (380 posts) -

I don't know where it'll take place, but I'm fairly certain that upwards of 75% of the story will be told through audio logs and there'll be an ultimately meaningless moral choice/player agency system again because it's fucking Ken Levine.

Or maybe they'll change it up pretty dramatically and do Singularity style video logs.

Oh there'll probably be boring corridor crawl and combat arenas again too.

#33 Posted by GeekDown (1173 posts) -

I hope they don't make another Bioshock game. I want the next spiritual successor. So that it's System Shock, Bioshock and now their next thing.

Or a BioShock/BioForge crossover. A man, a flute, and a fork. ... A fork. A fork. A fork. A fork.

The Von Braun. The USSR sounds good too, considering they've already done two games set in right wing (politically) locations.

I'm actually making a story about what I think the next Bioshock will be.

#41 Edited by SomeDeliCook (2341 posts) -

Space was System Shock

Under water was Bioshock

In the sky was Infinite

How about underground?

#42 Posted by MrGamingfan64 (1 posts) -

I want the next bioshock game to be open world and to take place in not just 1 ,but 3 cities! :D just think about it...not only can we explore Columbia and Rapture, but also an underground city!("possibly taking place in Russia and/or China, but who knows?)

It might also be cool if "tears" from Bioshock Infinite were to be used in this game, because in Burial at Sea episode 2, There was one part where Elizabeth had to use a machine to open a tear leading to Columbia for her to collect a hair sample, then return to Rapture to give it to Suchong. If possible the same machine could be used to travel between those 3 cities as well as different times and dimensions where they take place!

As for the story, the game can be the sequel to Bioshock 2, since Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea was a prequel to Bioshock 1. Personally I also think it would be interesting to see Eleanor Lamb from Bioshock 2 as either the helper of the protagonist like Elizabeth in Infinite, or (even better) to have Eleanor the protagonist herself! :)

It could start off with Eleanor going to the underground city called the Underworld-topia( which takes place under the border of Russia and the eastern kingdoms like China, Korea, India, etc)after receiving a strange signal coming from that area.

Later, after entering Underworld-topia she a find a machine called The Tear-o-matic. When she activates it, she could either go back to Rapture( before it fell, of course XD) or explore Columbia, to even later, to go to the other city(which could be Columbia, after Rapture or the other way around) and then going back to Underworld-topia and then later repeat the process!

The year could be the same year as the wars on communism like the Cold war, vietnam war, etc!

Also, if this game were to really happen(not that I hope it will) I would frinking love that :D

Somewhere beyond the sea.

#44 Posted by Evilsbane (4954 posts) -

I feel like Infinite is kinda the peak of the Bioshock formula I don't see it getting much better than that. So lets go back to fucking System Shock SHODAN SHODAN!

#45 Edited by Corevi (6613 posts) -

Another Bioshock won't happen because Ken Levine wants to make indie games no matter how many people have to fired for that to happen.

I was going to say space but I can't think of a game that takes place in the core of Earth, that could be pretty cool.

#49 Edited by StarvingGamer (8844 posts) -

I like nchan's idea to set it during the Panama–Pacific International Exposition world's fair in San Francisco in 1915. The fair itself was split into discreet sections, including "The Zone", an area for popular amusements and concessions. You could have it start during the fair when something CATASTROPHIC happens, sending everything into disarray, eventually leading the protagonist into a secret underground labyrinth. The plot could be somehow tied in to the earthquake of 1906.

Lighthouse you ask? Just north of the Marina District where the fair was held is Alcatraz Island. This bad boy (and the prison) was built in 1909.

EDIT: You could turn the formula on its head, start at the top of the lighthouse and head down and out, taking a boat to the mainland. Have the protagonist be a warden or something.
