Actor Jack Quaid has called for a televised adaptation of 2K Games’ beloved series, Bioshock.
Quaid, who’s best known as Hughie Campbell in Amazon’s smash-hit series, The Boys, spoke with ComicBook regarding Bioshock and its lore following the cancellation of the planned Bioshock movie, stating that he believes the franchise is best suited to a full television series.
“I think they should make a TV show out of Bioshock,” Quaid told ComicBook.
“[A] movie’s too small…..I mean, I literally have the skyhook over here, but Infinite’s good. I think it’s simpler and just more interesting with the very first one….And Minerva’s Den in two is amazing, but yeah, they’ve got to do it someday.”
He also stated that the series would be best kicking off with Bioshock Infinite, the third game in the line-up and, arguably, the most confusing.
As for whether we’ll ever see a movie or TV adaptation of Bioshock…well, the jury’s out on that one. Right now, Cloud Chamber is hard at work on the fourth instalment in the beloved series.
Although details are thin on the ground, it’s tentatively believed that the next game will take place in a brand new location – not Columbia or Rapture.
In a recent job listing for a Lead Environment Modeler at Cloud Chamber’s Montreal studio, the site specifically mentions the team is working on Bioshock, before citing its plans to create a “new and fantastical world.”
“We want you to set the example, leading efforts to help us breathe life into a new and fantastical world,” read the post.
Considering Bioshock fans have spent two games in the underwater world of Rapture, and another game in the cloud city of Columbia, you have to ask what “new world” is coming next…?
