"Talking with MCV, 2K Games global prez Christoph Hartmann admits that the BioShock franchise could churn out five total sequels in its life, but promises that 2K won't just "cash in" on the title.

Talking about the potential for future sequels, Hartmann says that "if we spin it the right way and get the right twist of innovation, we can make six parts of it, as Star Wars did." Something that Star Wars did do, but video games are a bit different and as much as Hartmann wants to compare BioShock to Star Wars, it's clear to us that BioShock is its own beast. Just be careful 2K. Just be careful."

I can only hope.

I've just... got... this game and I must admit it, it's great. I've been able to play a few minutes of it, but it's looking awesome already.

That's true. Sadly, not even the three-movie prequel saga was either!

PS: No, seriously. I hope that if this is true and they end up doing 5 sequels for the game, then the last three better not be as shitty as the aforementioned Star Wars films

Here Is my prediction (if this happens) on how good the sequels will be:


BS II: Sucks ass (rushed to prove they actually are making the sequels)

BS III: Pretty damn good

BS IV: The first one with different characters and setting, because people won't remember what the original BS was like.

BS V: Unknown, a next-next-gen console release-day title.

BS VI: a standalone expansion pack to BS V



Oh, and they'll make a fucking confusing timeline like the Zelda series.


This is totally just a prediction.

That's a more appropriate prediction.

So...a company says that if a franchise continues to sell, they will continue to milk the franchise.

Wow....this is unheard of!

Aren't they being a bit ambitious with announcing that they'll be eventually doing 5 sequels? Shouldn't they atleast focus on the next game or two they're working on, making sure it doesn't suck?
