It was announced earlier this week that Irrational Games, the makers of the "BioShock" series, would be shutting their doors while co-founder Ken Levine headed to Take-Two taking a much smaller staff with him. Despite the closure of Irrational, 2K Games has revealed that there are still plans for the future of the "BioShock" series, even without them.

"'BioShock' is one of our most beloved and critically-acclaimed franchises, and we are indebted to Ken and the talented team at Irrational Games for their contributions to the series with 'BioShock' and 'BioShock Infinite'; the latter being one of the most decorated games of 2013," a 2K Games representative told Game Informer. "The 'BioShock' universe remains a rich creative canvas for many untold stories, and we look forward to exploring the next 'BioShock' experience."

Released in 2007, BioShock has gone on to sell over 4 million copies since its debut and became one of the most criticallyacclaimed games of the year. Though they weren't involved in the sequel, Irrational Games brought us spin-off game BioShock Infinite last year which has gone on to sell over 4 million copies in less than a year.

Do you want to see a BioShock sequel without Irrational Games involved? Sound off below!
