    2K: BioShock could get five sequels

    But publisher promises "not to cash in" on the series.
    Christoph Hartmann, the global president of BioShock publisher 2K, says the franchise could see six games "if we spin it the right way and get the right twist of innovation".

    Which series has 2K been milking besides maybe Civilization? They've published more original IPs than any mainstream publisher I can think of offhand.

    Most publishers hide the fact that a game is the sixth in the series because they stop numbering them at either 3 or 4.... if they even numbered them at all. Doesn't the GTA series actually have something like eight games?

    Not counting the GTA London expansions and handheld versions, there's:

    GTA
    GTA 2
    GTA III
    GTA Vice City
    GTA San Andreas
    GTA IV

    They probably didn't number Vice City and San Andreas to avoid what happened with GTA 2, which was criticised for using the same engine as the first one.

    Thus, VC and San Andreas are something between sequels and standalone expansions to GTA III, and also form a somewhat interconnected trilogy with recurring characters etc.

    GTA IV on the other hand is a fresh start.

    Yeah I guess if you look at 2K Games' parent company they've certainly milked the GTA license to death, although people don't seem to mind that so much for some reason.

    Just looking at 2K Games itself, I don't think they've existed long enough to become a sequel factory with the strange exception of the Civilization brand.
