Netflix has announced that they are partnering with Take-Two Interactive to produce a movie based on the popular Bioshock franchise.
The Bioshock series follows multiple futuristic societies gone wrong, as the player needs to escape the ruins of what was once an ideal society. The series is known for its unique storytelling that constantly challenges the player’s perceptions of what’s actually going on.
“Netflix is among the best and most forward-thinking storytellers in all of entertainment today. We are thrilled that they share our vision and commitment to the BioShock franchise, which is beloved by millions of fans around the world,” said Take-Two Interactive’s Chairman and CEO, Strauss Zelnick. “2K’s Cloud Chamber studio is deep in active development on the next iteration of the series, and coupled with our partnership with Netflix, we remain highly confident that BioShock will continue to captivate and engage audiences like never before.”
The project does not have a writer or filmmaker officially attached to it yet.
The video game series hasn’t had a new entry since 2013’s Bioshock Infinite, but a new entry was confirmed to currently be in the works.
