2K Australia Lives Again, Working On Latest Bioshock

Playstation 3 Shooter Sony Xbox 360 PC News Action FPS Microsoft 2K

In Australia, the economic crisis hasn’t been treating our video games industry quite well, with very few big publishers actually staying put. 2K Games have been one of those publishers, but for some time, rumours developed of layoffs at the Canberra studio. Actually, it seems that the opposite is happening. Not only has the studio re-introduced the name 2K Australia, but their experience in the Bioshock games have been rewarded as they have received work on the latest game in the Bioshock world, Bioshock Infinite.

According to MCV Pacific, this news came from an employee of the studio. The studio was working with 2K Marin, under that name, on teh game XCOM. It seems that work on that has been halted in favour of Infinite, which is turning out to be a fantastic and creative game. What section of the game they are working on is currently unknown. This is great news for the studio since those rumours emerged. Maybe those particular rumours can now be put to bed as the studio works hard on one of the most anticipated games of 2012.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!

    Good to see that Australian developers still have a chance to do something in today’s market.

      It is good isn’t it. Especially with all the talk of game development in Australia being dead in the water.

    • I will agree. Love the fact that the studio can help with the latest Bioshock, given their experience. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction.
