BioShock: The Collection has been rated for Xbox One by a Taiwanese regulation board (of all places). The game has yet to be officially announced by publisher 2K Games, but this is now the third indication that a collection is on the way.
Twitter user Lifelower spotted the rating, and very considerately shared the link to the listing for all to see. No release date is mentioned, but we do get a glimpse of some potential box art. Take a peek below.
This is the third time news of the game has leaked from an unlikely source. Back in September 2015, South African retailer, Raru, listed BioShock Collection for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Not long after, the Brazil Advisory Rating Board (everyone’s favourite Adisory Rating Board) published a listing for BioShock: The Collection.
So which Bioshock games will be included in this hypothetical compilation? If you take a closer look at the image (courtesy of Lifelower’s tweet), we may have a few clues.

Considering the image is split into three levels (under the sea, above the sea, and up in the sky) it’s safe to assume that this references Bioshock 1, 2, and Infinite respectively. It’s a subtly clever image, so it’d be a shame if it wasn’t actually real.
Obviously with no official word, we don’t know what the collection might entail. Will the games be remasters or straight up ports? If indeed this is legit, I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough.
