2K May Be Hinting an Upcoming BioShock Reveal

2K Games is pushing ADVENT, but is it a new BioShock or a different franchise?

Ever since the closure of Irrational Games back in 2014, the fate of the BioShock franchise has been up in the air. 2k Marin was set to helm the next title, but after the critical flop of X-COM: The Bureau Declassified, the developer fell silent.

Yesterday, on 2K’s official Twitter, may have given glimpse of our next dystopian society. The account tweeted a video of what seems to be propaganda for a “city of tomorrow,” which glitches, changing the welcoming message of “Move in today and start living in the World of Tomorrow” to something sinister:

Kicking off the viral advertising was www.adventfuture.org, a mock site for this supposed world of tomorrow which was created in April of this year. According to the website’s hackers, not all is what it seems in ADVENT.

Should this be the next BioShock, it seems citizen uprising will remain a central theme; and one of the bigger questions that remains is what roll will the gamer play? To change things up, maybe we’ll be treated to the other side of things and play a roll in the oppression rather than the uprising.

Of course, whether this actually is BioShock is up for debate. 2K also headlines the X-COM series, and ADVENT could easily be a city under extraterrestrial control. 

All we can do is simply wait it out and enjoy the string of viral marketing.
