Irrational Games – especially known for the Bioshock series as well as the legendary System Shock 2 – has changed its name and is teasing a new project.
Irrational Beings Become Ghosts
After a 4 year lull since the release of Bioshock Infinite, Irrational Games has an unexpected announcement. Via Twitter the developers reported that they’ve changed their name to Ghost Story.
The studio formerly known as Irrational Games is now called “Ghost Story”. Come learn what’s going on for our fans! Https: //t.co/lyimVt22hc

The studio consists of twelve former Irrational Games employees and could be regarded as a spiritual successor to Irrational. Their goal is to create high-quality games of interest to more than just Bioshock fans. In case your are wondering they’ve chosen the name Ghost Story because: “Ghost stories are immersive, exciting and steeped in community. The name reminds us of our mission.”
“Our mission is simple: to create immersive, story-driven games for people who love games that ask something of them. While we believe our new games will have strong appeal to fans of BioShock, our new focus allows us to craft experiences where the gameplay is as challenging as the stories.”
Fans can therefore expect titles that are as high-quality in story and gameplay as the previous Bioshock and System Shock games. Ghost Story does not want to say anything about a new title at the moment – but they almost certainly have one in development. We are looking forward to what they come up with and will keep you up to date as more news unfolds.
