Bioshock Set To Be A Trilogy

Considering the critical acclaim and widespread popularity surrounding the first Bioshock, it's no real surprise to learn that more installments in the series are on the way. It may seem a little silly to PlayStation 3 owners, though, who have yet to even see the first title (it's scheduled for October).

Anyway, according to IGN, Take-Two Interactive chairman Strauss Zelnick announced plans for a third Bioshock game - that's right, a third - and it will "likely coincide with the release of the Gore Verbinski-directed film version of the game." They asked Zelnick when the movie might hit theaters, and he replied that it would probably be released "coincident" with the third game entry rather than the second...which means the film is still a good ways off. We already knew about the sequel, of course - that much was revealed a few months ago - but this is the first we're hearing of the third Bioshock, which officially makes this one a high-quality and highly anticipated trilogy. By the way, Bioshock 2 is set for a Q4 release during Take-Two's fiscal 2009, and at this point, we just have to assume it's coming for both the Xbox 360 and PS3.

No platforms were announced for Bioshock 3, but that's so far off, it's not even necessary at this point. We just wanted to let y'all know that the unbelievable goodness of this stellar series is going to continue on for a looooong time.

This is good news for Take-Two. I hope we've seen the last of the EA, Take-Two buy-out. That was annoying as hell. Now lets get this Bioshock 2 out soon...

I can't remember the whole quote but he says something right after the comment about the third game with coincide with the movie.
I believe what he is trying to say with that is that the movie is so far off that if there was going to be a third game, that would probably be when the movie comes out. My guess is 2011-2012.

Still, we still can't wait for the game, and we want the first one soo bad that we are already anticipating the release of the 2nd one. Plus what most of us get from the artical that Ben wrote... we all get that Bioshock will be a trilogy unless they decided to cancel it. GO BIOSHOCK FOR PS3!
