Gamers probably remember a time when Bioshock was the hottest release every so often, as the trilogy of games capitavated fans all around the world thanks to their stories.
Now, it's been over eight years since the last title released in Bioshock Infinite, and now, we finally have some more news regarding a fourth title.
Here's what we know so far.
Bioshock 4 2022 release date leaked
This really isn't new information pertaining to the release of Bioshock 4, as we've been hearing some rumors for quite some time now that Bioshock 4 will get announced and released sometime in the near future.
One leaker, OopsLeaks noted a bunch of new information over on Twitter, and noted that we shouldn't expect the game to release until at least 2024.
At the moment, I don’t even have an approximate information about the announcement date of the game, according to T2 reports, it should be released no later than the end of 2024.— Oops Leaks (@oopsleaks) September 4, 2022
This comes with a bit of a delay, as earlier rumors were suggesting a 2022/2023 release date, but due to some development issues with the studio involved, this isn't possible no more.
In terms of an announcement, OopsLeaks noted we could see it as early as this year.
We can see the announcement as early as at the next PlayStation showcase (maybe this was an agreement between 2K and PS which was previously reported by @Shpeshal_Nick) or following Geoff's dream at TGA 2022 or any random date. The game itself is not a PS5 exclusive in any form.— Oops Leaks (@oopsleaks) September 4, 2022

OopsLeaks went on quite the field day when it comes to revealing information around the game, and we're going to note down the biggest points that they made below.

A recent job listing at Cloud Chamber games, the developers for this new Bioshock, could suggest that the team is developing the game using Unreal Engine 5. This ad for a Senior Gameplay Programmer requests that the candidate will “work within Unreal Engine 5 adapting existing systems and building new technology in order to fulfil the project’s technical needs and creative goals."
Another major aspect of Bioshock 4 was revealed over the backhalf of Novembre 2021, as OopsLeaks has noted that the title is going to be called Bioshock Isolation and will be revealed in the first quarter of 2021!
