Ratings board kindly reveals Bioshock: The Collection

Ratings classifiers must be the bane of publisher's lives. All that effort getting NDAs signed and all the Brazilian ratings board (opens in new tab) has to do is list Bioshock: The Collection and word is out. The collection, presumably a nice shiny HD version of all three, is listed for release on PS4, Xbox One and PC as well as last gen consoles so it looks like we might all get the chance to go back to Rapture again. Last year the collection popped up on a South African website Raru so it's not too much of a surprise that this is incoming.

An HD version definitely seems to be the only way we're going to get a glimpse of anything Bioshock shaped any time soon. 2K still own the franchise name and although it said last year that it is "unquestionably a permanent franchise" there's been no sign of any new trips to places that happen to have lighthouses. As we know, original creator Ken Levine is off creating his narrative based open world game (opens in new tab) so anything new would be entirely 2K's project. 2K Marin was previously said to be attached to a new Bioshock but things have been very quiet from the studio since the release of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (opens in new tab). We'll keep you updated.
