2K Games has been talking about their Bioshock franchise, with CEO Strauss Zelnick confirming the importance of the franchise to the publisher.
"It's a really important intellectual property for the company," Zelnick said during the Technology, Media, & Telecom Conference in New York. "And while I don't have any announcements to make, yes, it's a really important franchise for us."
During the same talk Zelnick confirmed that all told the franchise has shifted more than 25 million copies, with Bioshock Infinite accounting for at least 11 million of those sales.
With series creators Irrational Games no longer handling the franchise (2K Marin have that responsibility now), there has been plenty of speculation circulating with regards to its future. While the story that Irrational started was certainly wrapped up in Burial at Sea (the expansion for Infinite), there's still plenty of places the new custodians could take it. We certainly can't wait to find out more about the plans for the universe.
