Following its extremely positive reception, BioShock is being eyed as a major new franchise by 2K Games parent Take-Two - which is already talking sequels.
The publisher's recently spoke of the possibility of hitting "roughly" a new BioShock release every two years.
"I would say, probably, roughly an every-two-year schedule would be optimal. And if you look historically, that has been largely the case with GTA, and I'd expect we'd apply roughly the same strategy to BioShock because BioShock is shaping up to be a very important franchise," Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick said in a conference call with analysts.
"I don't want to say more than that about BioShock because I certainly don't want to jinx it, but I feel awfully good about where that's going."
In related news, Take-Two's revealed that L.A. Noire, which will be published under the Rockstar label, has been delayed - it's now due in the company's 2009 fiscal year which starts in November 2008.
