Ken Levine has quite the resume when it comes to games. He has worked on such ambitious and critically-acclaimed titles as Thief: The Dark Project, System Shock 2, Tribes, and most recently BioShock (PS3, Xbox 360, PC). Big titles all, but his next project could be the biggest one yet.
Levine recently told Gamasutra that he and the 2K Boston team currently have an unnamed project lined up that is "substantially more ambitious than BioShock." That was as far as Levine would go into this upcoming title, although he did hint that it's still a long way off:
When we thought about this project, we accounted for the fact that hiring the staff that we needed to hire would take some time.
And when we thought about the shipping date of the project... We needed a certain kind of length for the title, because we had a scope and ambition in mind which is more ambitious than anything we've ever done. Even more, substantially more ambitious than BioShock. And we knew that was not going to happen overnight.
