This is the new rumor of the day! The next BioShock, which we will call BioShock 4 for the moment, could be in the spotlight in the coming weeks.
According to these new rumors, BioShock 4 would be called BioShock Insulation. At least, temporarily.
This information comes from Oops Leaks, an account Twitter which seems to be recent and therefore, to be taken with great care. However, Oops Leaks back up his words with two tweets that seem to come from a presentation reserved for internal teams (you know, this famous information that must absolutely remain secret!)

There might be two cities with radically different ideology, one of them located underground right below the other, both sharing a “flipside” border zone with an unleashed “vertical war”. pic.twitter.com/Cy6fddJmV1

The second tweet features an image with a playground spread over two cities, one of which would be underground.
Yes, we know, that’s a lot of conditional. But at least that changes some news on the Black friday! Still, the arrival of a next Bioshock remains news that we hope to confirm quickly.
