Newsbrief: 2K Games is bringing the original BioShock to mobile later this year, months after its original developer was shut down.

BioShock for iOS will be a premium-price game, with "optimized" touch-controls and controller support.

The future of the BioShock franchise has been widely discussed since Irrational Games shut down earlier this year.

Looks pretty good.

It'd be nice to see a "remaster" or whatever those things are called on the original Bioshock. Not now, but probably sometime in the future. You know the deal, higher-resolution textures, modern graphical upgrades, etc. Either way this game should definitely be preserved over time. I'll probably never stop playing it.

Now that they've got a mobile version in the works, how about sparing a bit of money to get the original PC version working properly on Windows 7, so people can actually play it?
