While a BioShock remake has yet to be announced, fans are looking forward to a film adaptation of the popular franchise.

Ordered by Netflix and helmed by Francis Lawrence, the man behind The Hunger Games movie adaptations, the live-action movie promises to be a worthwhile adventure, even if it’s going to be a while before we have the chance to see it.

The script is still in the drafting stage, indicating that it may be several years before the film graces our screens.

BioShock is not the only video game film adaptation in the works. Recently, Hollywood has been seeing more and more success with movies based on games, especially following the incredible numbers brought in by the Super Mario Bros. movie over the summer.

Most recently, the horror video game movie adaptation Five Nights at Freddy’s was released to theaters, and just yesterday Nintendo announced that a live-action Legend of Zelda movie is in the works.

Bioshock 4 In 2028


Meanwhile, the BioShock video game franchise is continuing development with a sequel game currently in the production pipeline.

However, BioShock 4, the next installment in the gaming series, is reportedly not expected to be released until 2028. With years before more content will be released, devoted fans of the dystopian were no doubt pleased to watch such a well-done fan-made trailer.

The trailer provides a compelling taste of what a modernized BioShock experience could offer, complete with the hauntingly beautiful underground world of Rapture and the eerie ambiance that fans have come to associate with the franchise.

While it’s a daydream that may never come to fruition, the trailer highlights the dedication and creativity of the BioShock fanbase.

As BioShock fans patiently await the official releases on the horizon, they can at least bide the time with fan-made content like this one, which continues to breathe new life into the iconic gaming series.
