2K Games' Cristoph Hartmann Suggests BioShock Could Have Five Sequels

If you really liked BioShock, you might like what Cristoph Hartmann had to say about the franchise:

There might be up to five sequels for it


"If we spin [BioShock] the right way and get the right twist of innovation, we can make six parts of it, as Star Wars did," 2K president Christoph Hartmann told MCV. "Look at Star Wars. It's a fight between good and evil, just like BioShock."

"But we have to be careful not to cash in," he added. "Because [BioShock] is so story driven, the question obviously arises: how long can you do it without turning into The Matrix? The first Matrix was great, the second one was weird and the third one, you thought: 'Who [making this] is on crack and who isn't?'"

Continuing, the president explained the dangers: "I won't name the company, but there was a great racing game years ago. They brought it back year-on-year. If you look at the scores, it's hard to believe what they've done to it. It's upsetting, actually."

That last jab seems to be fitting EA's Need for Speed series.
