BioShock Movie Still in the Works at Irrational, Not a Priority

May 4, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

While Ken and the team at Irrational Games are furiously working away to finish up BioShock Infinite, talk about the long discussed movie has been pushed aside in favor of the game’s upcoming release.

For all of you keeping your fingers crossed for the film adaptation, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the studio still has plans to make it a reality, while the bad news is that it likely won’t happen in the near future.

Speaking with Edge in a recent interview, Levine explained that for a BioShock film to really work, everything needs to be just right, and with the team currently so focused on Infinite, putting all the pieces together will likely take some time.

The thing with Gore [Verbinski] didn’t work out, but there’s no such thing as ‘it’s finished’ when it comes to making a movie out of something. It’s always about the stars aligning. We’re still focusing on it, but it hasn’t consumed us so much.

Right now, we’re choosing our battles and focusing on making BioShock: Infinite.

BioShock Infinite is set for release this October.
