Zelnick: BioShock has "long life indeed"

But 2K Marin may not develop forever.

Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick has said that the publisher plans to "support" the BioShock series and that another developer might be involved next time.

"2K Marin is working on XCOM. As it relates to BioShock, we think BioShock is still one of the most important franchises in the industry and we do intend to support it," Zelnick said in a conference call following yesterday's financial report.

"Doesn't necessarily have to be 2K Marin, but we do intend to support the franchise.

"First and foremost we're focused on downloadable content - we intend to continue to support BioShock 2 with further downloadable content. We think the franchise has a long life indeed.

"And 2K Marin's focus on XCOM is just bringing another storied franchise to the marketplace, which is what we're all about."

BioShock 2 was released four months ago in February to solid reviews, including a merry 8/10 from Eurogamer, and has been followed by multiplayer downloadable content already.

2K Marin is working on XCOM, but rather bizarrely the core of the work is being done at 2K's Australian studio, which happens to operate under the group banner of 2K Marin. We don't understand either.
