‘BioShock’ is getting a film adaptation and fans are worried

On February 16, a tweet from an official off-shoot Twitter account of a major streaming platform stated that the platform would be partnering with 2k and Take-Two Interactive to make a film adaptation of one of the best games of the 2010s: BioShock.

There are almost no details about this development, though. According to Variety, there is no release date, no director, and no cast as of now. For now, all we have is this tweet that shows off a Little Sister and a Big Daddy, two iconic characters from the games.

The first BioShock game was released back in 2007 and was immediately received well by critics for its gameplay and its morality-driven story. The game is set in an underwater city called Rapture. You play as Jack, who unintentionally enters the city and uncovers the deep and dark history of how the city came to be. The first Bioshock game was so successful that two critically acclaimed sequels proceeded after it – BioShock 2 and BioShock: Infinite.

On Twitter, some fans have been a bit skeptical about the decision of 2k to partner with the streaming service for an adaptation. Historically, the platform has not been the greatest when it comes to anime adaptations, so they’ve garnered a bad reputation in that sense (especially recently with their Cowboy Bebop adaptation).

Others feel like the story and gameplay won’t be suited for a series and for an adaptation as a whole.

On the other hand, some fans were quite happy and excited to hear of the announcement:

We all just have to keep our eyes peeled for further news about this BioShock film adaptation. Let’s hope it does not disappoint.
