America’s software ratings board is the latest to leak 2K’s unannounced Bioshock re-release.
First hinted at last fall by a South African game retailer and again last month by the Brazil Advisory Rating Board, Bioshock: The Collection has all but been announced after a third listing by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
The ESRB’s listing of the game (pictured below) has rated the game for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but details about the game’s release date are nowhere to be found.
Unfortunately, none of the listings have noted whether the games are simply a re-release on next-gen hardware or if they’ll receive the “remaster treatment” with upped resolution and a higher framerate.
Publisher 2K still owns the rights to the games despite Bioshock creator Ken Levine closing his studio in 2014. Adding to the likelihood of The Collection being real, Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of 2K’s parent company Take-Two, said Bioshock is “a permanent franchise in our company.”
With the Electronic Entertainment Expo coming in early June, perhaps it’s not unreasonable for 2K to officially pull back the curtain on Bioshock: The Collection.
