He last said that a movie was “definitely still in the conversation,” but that doesn’t look like its the case anymore.
“[F]or us there’s no burning [desire] to have a movie made just to get it made,” he said in the new interview. “For us and for Take-Two, it’s really got to be something that will a) give the fans something that they want, and b) for those who don’t know BioShock, really introduce them to something that is consistent with the game, and is it going to be a good representation of the game.”
He added, “There are differences between games and movies, no doubt, but the movie has to draw from the same DNA in terms of the world and the story beats. But you know, we don’t have a need to get it made.”
Irrational Games’ new BioShock Infinite game will be coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2012.
