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.
