2K Games owner Take-Two Interactive has officially announced the creation of 2K Marin, a new development studio located at 2K's new headquarters in Novato, California. Said to be creating original intellectual properties as well as assisting with other 2K projects, 2K Marin is reported to be made up of some ex-BioShock (PC, X360) staff. BioShock was developed at 2K's studios in Australia and Boston, a tag-team formerly known as Irrational Games.
We're focused on continuing to bring new brands and cutting-edge gameplay to market with the creation of the 2K Marin studio,
said 2K president Christoph Hartmann.
2K Marin will build upon our success in creating and leveraging AAA franchises.

Not really considering Ken Levine is still at 2k Boston and he was behind the System Shock games i.e. what Bioshock was partially based on.:)

Yeah I thought this was one of the reasons why the devs started up a new 2K division.
To get away from Ken.

I guess only time will tell if Ken is behind the next Bioshock if there is one.
A bit hard to tell if there is going to be another even after finishing the game.
Never harvesting a Little sister again.

Hey I was being careful.
I know this game in particular is one not to spoil.:slap:

Nearly gone through it a third time because it's that good.
Only thing I didn't like about it is how it either worked on your system awesome or it didn't at all.
