This isn’t the first time South African retailer ‘Raru has accurately listed unannounced video games.
Spotted this morning on NeoGAF, it appears that the Bioshock series will be coming to next-gen consoles. Surprisingly, the retailer’s site lists the game for release as early as November 27th, 2015 with pre-orders already available. To add a little credibility to this listing, the same retailer listed Jigglypuff, Greninja and Splatoon Amiibos last March prior to them being officially announced by Nintendo. In case the site removes the listing, here’s a screenshot:
The supposed November 27th release date is a Friday which fits the typical release schedule for Africa, Europe and the Middle-East. If the date is accurate, North American gamers can probably expect the game to come out on Tuesday the 24th.
As far as pricing goes, “R 711” has been confirmed by a South African Redditor to be the average price of brand new games, so the collection will probably retail for $60 US or your local equivalent.
Because the game has yet to be announced, no details about the collection are available. Many are beginning to speculate that the rerelease may just be a low-buget port of the PC version of the game. While it’s not quite fair to make that assumption just yet, one would imagine that if publisher 2K put a lot of time and effort into improving the games’ graphics and performance, they probably would have revealed the collection months ago at E3. Although the fantastic games deserve a port akin to the Handsome Jack Collection, the lack of advertising for the title make it seem more like the less-than-stellar Prototype or Dishonored next-gen ports.
Like all rumors, this listing should be taken with a grain of salt until 2K confirms or denies the listing.
Would you be interested in buying a Bioshock collection on next-gen, or would you rather play the games on last-gen? Feel free to let me know in the comments or on Twitter!
