A job posting over on publisher Take-Two Interactive’s Careers page calls for a Cinematic Narrative Scripter with Unreal Engine 4 experience. The listing describes the project as an “opportunity to work on a creatively ambitious project in the immersive sim genre.”

Lets hope its more system shock and less bioshock.

Immersive sim is best gaming genre and they are very rare. so more immersive sim is more good.

Could use another Thief game, too, or something stealthy. There's been a dearth of legit stealth games out lately

...and no, Hitman doesn't count, that's not lurkng in the shadows stealth, that's hiding in plain sight stealth.

And yeah stoked about the "immersive sim" phrasing of it.

Nice to see him back in game making. I really enjoyed Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite so I’m quite interested in seeing what this game might be like.

I really miss the incremental light systems Thief and Splinter Cell use to have, where it became almost a mini micromanagement reaction game between vision, speed and sound.

When Double Agent (the shit one) dropped that trying to mimic the minimalist UI of Dead Space where it became like Metal Gear Solid of a "on/off" detection, it really fucked the core of the game up.

The Xbox (good Double Agent) was the last game I played that had it.

@ghosts4ever: No, not every single game but there are a lot of games that I like and I’m a very good judge at getting games that I feel I’ll enjoy so it’s pretty rare for me to be disappointed with something that I get.

I remain hurt by the abrupt closure of Irrational. The team could’ve gone dark, prototyping a future project and Levine could have stepped away on a sabbatical to recharge his batteries, but I digress.

Amen brother.

I Won't say the Bioshocks are bad games, but as "spiritual successors" to System Shock 2 they fall very short.

Well, he hasn't made any car games, or worked closely with Microsoft.

Anywho, nice to see that he's making games. I seriously want a new Thief, but that's probably about zero chance of happening.

He created one of the best and most immersive game ever made that is System shock 2.

no car game. even though i hate bioshock games infact i found bioshock infinite as one of the worst AAA FPS.

this man has more talent in his little finger than turn 10 studios.

Cool. Bioshock: Infinite was a huge letdown, but there's no denying this guy's talent and would love to see what he comes up with. I hope he goes all in like Prey 2017 did, which was a fantastic game despite it's flaws.

@mrbojangles25: Bioshock is to System Shock what Metro is to S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. It is a much more accessible and polished game. I definitely prefer both Metro and Bioshock.

He has been great, but I fear he has completely lost his mojo, and we should probably lower our expectations for a new game from him greatly. BioShock Infinite sucked so much balls, it really hurt my perception of his talent.

Don't go ghosts level of stupid. I play games and not follow the people who make them.

I have also owned Sega, Sony & Nintendo consoles not just the ones from MS, so again don't go ghosts level of stupid.

Ah yes he has more talent in his little finger than a whole studio, because he made these games by himself and never had any help. So he's the western Kojima in your eyes, and you're a fangirl lol.

As always your opinions are worthless :)

That's a great comparison. I agree.

Ken Levine is great, I'll play whatever he releases next. As long as he doesn't go insane like Molyneux and release a cube clicker :P

Excited. Current gen revived old school gaming in the shape of Doom, Prey etc. Can bet it'll be more open ended game like System Shock than linear Bioshock.

I played Bioshock 1, couldnot play it for more than hour because its gameplay is so mediocre and so dull.

then someone said bioshock 2 is better, tried it and end up hating it too.

I also tried bioshock infinite and i found its worst AAA FPS ever made untill wolfenstein 2 released.

series is just terrible all round. System shock 2 on other hand is still a masterpiece. Prey is better bioshock game than bioshock itself.

Is he the guy who made Fable??? I remember people bitching about him for some reason.

I don't even know who the heads of Playground games or Turn 10 is. I'm serious, and you went ghosts stupid level again.

I play games not their creators, maybe you should too :)

You don't know what I've played other than what I've told you young one, know that. I have only played the original Bioshock and enjoyed it, and the fact you didn't shows how much poor taste in games you have.

I bet you've secretly played games like Hanna Montana & My Horse & Me 2 lol.

Ever since Ken Levine made Bioshock: Infinite one of the most disappointing games I ever played back in 2013, he outlived his usefulness as a game developer and I stop caring what he's been up to.

Has he even acknowledged that Infinite sucks? Or is he proud of that game? Because if he is, abandon all hope for his future work.

Bioshock was amazing for the story, the world... but as a game it was not great. Way too easy was the main problem and kinda short. Still good, but that was 12 years ago! Infinite was not as good.

Another guy living on past hype who has not done anything good this decade. Reminds me of Kojima.

You know what I let you know, and that little bit of knowledge has poisoned your brain, well that and playing brain dead FPS.

Imagine thinking that you know what the only genres some one plays that you've never met and only spoken to over the net. 99.9% of people would thinks that's a crazy thought, now the other 00.1% (you) think that they do lol.

and these FPS require far more creativity than any racing game you played.

again mention some FPS games you played? or immersive sim you played? or anything other than racers and brain dead open worlds?
