2K Games' President, Christoph Hartmann states that 2K Marin is already working on a new game project...

Even though BioShock 2 has been delayed until next year, it seems the game's developers have still got the time to work on multiple projects, as 2K Games' President Christoph Hartmann has revealed that the studio is "far beyond the conceptual stage for a follow-up project after BioShock 2".

"What that is, I can't announce; I can't tell you obviously. But so far, they've completely exceeded my expectations," Hartmann told 1up in answer to a question about whether or not 2K Marin will become 'the BioShock studio' in future.

Although Hartmann wouldn't be drawn into any statements about the next BioShock game or 2K Marin's future involvement in the series, he did offer a convoluted sports metaphor about the "super talented" 2K Marin team:

"We hired a lot of superstars, and you know how it is in sports - there's always the risk if you hire all the superstars and it doesn't work out - but with a portion of luck, we get a great team. They have a bright future, and we have something lined up afterwards which is going to be exciting as well. And yes, they keep on growing. Will there be two teams at some point? Sure, it's possible. But it's something you have to be careful about, because many teams have tried it and it's not that easy to juggle two things at the same time and hit the same quality levels. Often what ends up happening is you have one triple-A game, and then the other one is kind of a B-plus. And I also don't want that."

This does seem to indicate that the "follow-up" project Hartmann refers to is unrelated to BioShock. His allusions to 2K Marin possibly being split into two dev teams would suggest that one will be 'the BioShock studio', while the other would be working on this new "far beyond the conceptual stage" project.

Presumably you're talking about the Minerva's Den DLC?

What platform do you have BioShock 2 on? Because the DLC on PC wasn't supposed to launch yesterday. 2K has it down for release "at a later date", although XBox Live and PSN were supposed to get it yesterday.

you wake up in rapture as a prototype big daddy six or seven years after bioshock 1. There will be multiplayer but no co-op play, also there will be people who are not splicers to talk to and do missions for kinda like 'tenambaum' you can wield two weapons now one big daddy weapon like the rivet gun or  'drillfist' <<< (thats what i call it) and a plasmid. there will be a new system for plasmids and there levels. for example level one will be a weak ball of fire or lightning etc level two is a charged plasmid so it can get stronger the longer you charge it, unfortunately this leaves you vulnerable to attack. level three is like a flame thrower of the different plasmids but i think that only aapplies to the fire ice and lightning plasmids

Yo can now also go underwater as you are the big daddy but there is one thing in your way. the big sister. and there will be a new option for the big sister which is to use her so she can harvest ADAM for you. thats most of what i no but i hope it will be helpfull to you guys.
