Bioshock The Collection Appears Briefly on 2K Site Before Being Taken Down

It looks like a remastered Bioshock collection is actually going to happen.

Ever since the ESRB listed Bioshock The Collection back in April (before taking it down again), fans of the series have been waiting for 2K to follow through and announce the inevitable remaster. Today, that announcement appears imminent, as 2K's site briefly showed the collection, along with the box art.

The page for the game was only up for a short while, and has since been taken down, but IGN was able to take a screenshot (seen below) while it was up. They also grabbed the box art and a wallpaper that were both hosted on 2K's servers.

The now-deleted ESRB listing revealed that the collection would contain "Three first-person shooters in which players assume the role of characters uncovering the mysteries behind the dystopian societies of Rapture and Columbia." That would seem to indicate that the collection will include Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock: Infinite.

Taking all of this together, you have to think that it's likely we'll see this collection announced soon. Once it finally releases, it will be a boon for anyone that never got to play the original.

Damn hope this is true.

Want to play Infinite again but I can't be bother with hauling my PS3 downstairs.

I have never posted this before and I feel like my reputation is going to slip a little but...

Hmm, now this is odd.
The Bioshock games have been on Microsofts list of upcoming backwards compatible 360 games for a while now, with no promised release date or any news for a long time. If they're really releasing a remastered collection, that would explain why they've been stalling it so long, and it would probably mean they'll cancel the backwards compatible releases.
It's a shame with the potential BC cancellation, but at the same time, a native remaster would probably perform better with regards to resolution and frame rate.

YEEESSS. Now I'll have an excuse to play Bioshock 2 again. Fucking love that one.

I know I've seen that poster somewhere before. Are you sure the box art has never been previously released?

also, everything would look a tad more realistic and less like everybody just rubbed garbage all over themselves

granted a fair number of them probably have but it's not like they ALL did

Sweet! I was nervous they would just skip over Bioshock 2.
