2K Games Has an Unannounced Remake in The Works

Publisher 2K Games seems to have an unannounced remake in the works and all signs point to BioShock. An “RTX remaster” of BioShock was mentioned in the massive NVIDIA GeForce leak a few years ago and since then, we’ve heard nothing about it.

As reported by MP1st, the LinkedIn page of a 3D artist and Motion Capture Animator at 2K Games, Brett Shupe, lists several projects that he’s been working on since February 2022. These include the next Mafia game, the next BioShock, a cancelled Supermassive Games title codenamed “Erebus” and most interestingly, an upcoming unannounced remake. He doesn’t explicitly say what this unannounced remake actually is, though the popular opinion appears to be BioShock.

A BioShock RTX remaster was already mentioned in the infamous NVIDIA GeForce Now leak. It’s possible that following the success of the Dead Space remake and Capcom’s numerous Resident Evil remakes, 2K Games might’ve changed the project from a simple remaster to a larger-scaled remake. BioShock released in 2007 so it’s well overdue for a remake, though fans believe that the remastered version of the game in BioShock: The Collection is already good enough to not warrant a full-blown remake for modern hardware.

There’s also the small chance that it could be another game being remade. Others have suggested that there might be a remake of The Darkness in development. A report from August 2023 suggested that a remaster of The Darkness might be coming, though there hasn’t been any word of it since then.

The official description of BioShock reads:

“BioShock is a shooter unlike any you’ve ever played, loaded with weapons and tactics never seen. You’ll have a complete arsenal at your disposal from simple revolvers to grenade launchers and chemical throwers, but you’ll also be forced to genetically modify your DNA to create an even more deadly weapon: you. Injectable plasmids give you super human powers: blast electrical currents into water to electrocute multiple enemies, or freeze them solid and obliterate them with the swing of a wrench.”
