Anyway, the place wont be such important, I'm mostly waiting for the scenario and the gameplay
The unfortunate part about a new setting is that it has to follow two rather memorable places in both Rapture and Columbia. Those were essentially characters within the games, without having actual speaking roles. If it turns out to be true that they do opt to use a completely new location, then I'm eager to see what they come up with.
I'm also curious about the story though but so far not even the job listings have given any real insight into what that might hold.
In general I'm hoping that development of the game goes uninterrupted. It supposedly was being planned/worked on as far back as 2015 but the version of it from that time was apparently thrown out for reasons that the public will probably never truly be made aware of. The wait will probably be somewhat long, but as long as we get something out of it, then it will hopefully be worth it.
