BioShock: The Collection is definitely on the way: at this point, it’s been confirmed from every source except the developers, and now even 2K is cryptically hinting.
Earlier today, the team sent out the first ever Tweet from the official BioShock Twitter account. The tweet only displays a welcome message and asks for followers, but hey, it’s a start, right?
Elsewhere on the internet, the existence of BioShock: The Collection‘s been leaked on 2K’s very own website before the page was taken down. There’s nothing to see there anymore, but AllGamesDelta managed to grab a few screenshots. Additionally, a sharp-eyed NeoGAF user found a batch of images uploaded to the site’s server with “The Collection” included in the filenames (via VG24/7).
That’s far from the only evidence that a collection is on the way, though. Word first popped up from a South African retailer all the way back September of 2015. The name appeared again in a listing from the Brazil Advisory Ratings Board last February, again on a Taiwanese ratings board website in March, and yet again on the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (our very own ESRB) site in April.
According to the ESRB listing, the new game is “a collection of three first-person shooters in which players assume the role of characters uncovering the mysteries behind the dystopian societies of Rapture and Columbia.” That sure sounds like BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite.
There’s still no official word beyond the welcome message, but if the listings are accurate, then BioShock: The Collection will be playable on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.
