Netflix is ​​one of the best and most forward-thinking storytellers in entertainment today,” enthuses Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive. The manager specifies that a new game from the BioShock saga is currently under development.

According to information from Variety, the film will be produced in partnership with Vertigo Entertainment, the production company behind Ça, Les Infiltrés, Death Note, Doctor Sleep and Poltergeist. The firm mainly produces horror and thriller oriented films. For the record, this is not the first time that a BioShock film has been mentioned. As early as 2010, a film inspired by the franchise directed by Gore Verbinski entered development. The project finally fell through after the director slammed the door.

Released in 2007 on PS3 and Xbox 360 in particular, the first BioShock game instantly won over players thanks to a disturbing, original universe inspired by the aesthetics of the 1940s. In this first opus, a character lost in the open sea accidentally falls on the underwater city of Rapture. Designed by Andrew Ryan, a megalomaniac billionaire, this mysterious city is subject to no censorship and no ethics, whether in science or art.
