BioShock Ken Levine Next Antarctica 1960s Borealis Setting

Next BioShock Game Reportedly Set in 1960s Antarctica

The setting for the next BioShock game has apparently been leaked. According to journalist Colin Moriarty (and corroborated by sources close to Video Games Chronicle), BioShock 4 will reportedly be set in Antarctica during the 1960s in a fictional city called Borealis. The game will have ties to the previous BioShock games, but will tell its own unique narrative.

Moriarty first broke the news via his Sacred Symbols podcast where he spoke a bit about the next BioShock in development at Cloud Chamber. The leak was later corroborated by Video Games Chronicle, who claims that their own sources reiterated many of the same points about the setting. While Moriarty has a history of leaks and insider information, Video Games Chronicle has always been a more reputable source when it comes to leaks.

Moriarty stated:

“It takes place in a 1960s Antarctic city called Borealis. [The game is] codenamed ‘Parkside’… I’ve been told that the development team has incredible latitude to get it right. That seems and sounds right to me.

Internally the game is very secret and apparently, totally locked up. Apparently the inclination there is that they understand full well that this game will be compared to what [BioShock creator] Ken Levine does. And by the way, [Take-Two] is also publishing Levine’s next game.”

Interestingly, this doesn’t entirely discredit a previous leak which claims that BioShock 4 (reportedly titled BioShock Isolation) will feature two mirrored cities. It’s possible that Borealis could be the name of this mirrored location.

We’ll likely hear more about BioShock 4 closer to its release, as the developer is apparently targeting a 2022 release window for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
