“If you're playing BioShock: The Collection, there's a good chance you'd like to stream your adventures in Rapture and/or Columbia,” a post from 2K reads. “Unfortunately, streaming BioShock: The Collection isn't an option right now. We will update this article should this situation change.”

BioShock: The Collection includes BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite. The games will be in 1080p at 60fps and development is in the hands of studio Squirrel Games. The PC version will not include BioShock Infinite as 2K believes it "already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings". A new director's commentary video series titled "Imagining BioShock" with creative director Ken Levine and lead animator Shawn Robertson will be bundled in.

In addition to the games and developer commentary, downloadable content (DLC) will be included as well. This includes the Challenge Rooms for the original released with the PS3 version of the game, the Museum of Orphaned Concepts gallery which first appeard with the Ultimate Rapture Edition. BioShock 2's multiplayer will not make the cut but its DLCs The Protector Trials and standalone story Minerva's Den will. As for BioShock Infinite, its Clash in the Clouds DLC as well as all parts of the story-based Burial at Sea will be present as would the Columbia's Finest pack, which offers extra weapons and gear.
