"Today I’m proud to say that we’ve added another important developer to the mix. Under the direction and leadership of 2K Marin, Arkane is assisting in the creation of levels that embody the aesthetic and gameplay ideals that make BioShock such a unique and exciting experience."

Arkane has previously worked on Dark Messiah of Might and Magic for Ubisoft and RPG Arx Fatalis.
