"We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us," the announcement tweet reads. "Netflix + BioShock. Would you kindly stay tuned?" There aren't any more details about this film adaptation yet, although a statement from Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick (thanks, IGN) says, "Netflix is among the best and most forward-thinking storytellers in all of entertainment today. We are thrilled that they share our vision and commitment to the BioShock franchise, which is beloved by millions of fans around the world."

Zelnick also confirmed that "2K’s Cloud Chamber studio is deep in active development on the next iteration of the series, and coupled with our partnership with Netflix, we remain highly confident that BioShock will continue to captivate and engage audiences like never before.”

Details on the next Bioshock game are slim, although one report near the end of last year claimed to have leaked the location, setting, and release window, with the report suggesting that Bioshock 4 could even launch this year.
