After the surprise shut down of Irrational Games, Adam Smith looks at the future of BioShock.
Ken Levine, co-founder of Irrational Games, the studio behind BioShock and Bioshock Infinite has announced that he is shutting down the studio in favour of creating a smaller task force.
Levine has taken only 15 of Irrational Games’s employees with him in his departure, and has left the rights for BioShock with 2K Games. The staff of Irrational Games are set to be passed on to other developers during a special recrutiment attended by Blizzard, Ubisoft and Infinity Ward, and so it is unlikely that any of the other 200 staff will be without work for long.
