Attempts have already been made to film the BioShock series – at the turn of the 2000s and 2010s, Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski was supposed to direct the film, but it didn’t work out.
Meanwhile, Studio Cloud Chamber, founded in late 2019, is working on a new game part of BioShock. There is no official release date, target platforms or even a name for the project.
