Take-Two describes BioShock as a 'permanent franchise'

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick says that BioShock fans don't need to worry, as the publisher sees BioShock as "a permanent franchise."

BioShock Infinite was released in 2012, but question marks surrounded the series following the closure of series creator Irrational Studios. Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick has reassured fans that BioShock is here to stay.

He went so far as to call BioShock a “permanent franchise.” Speaking at the MKM Partners Investor Conference, he said that the franchise is in the hands of 2K.

“They’ll make announcements in due time about any upcoming releases. But BioShock is unquestionably a permanent franchise for our company and one that we do believe in.”

Ken Levine stayed with Take-Two and is working on something “highly creative and innovative” according to Zelnick.

There have been rumours of late of a BioShock Collection for current-gen consoles. BioShock fans will be hoping that 2K has plans for a brand new adventure too.
