Enjoy BioShock on the Go… On Your Phone?
Given BioShock’s success, moving it to platforms other than PC and Xbox 360 seems like a no-brainer. It unfortunately doesn’t look like a PlayStation 3 version is ever going to happen, but there’s still the Wii, DS and PSP – any of those could offer an interesting platform for the game. Instead, IG Fun announced this week that it has acquired the license to develop a mobile version of BioShock.
Not quite what you were expecting, right?
We know next to nothing about what to expect from IG Fun’s mobile version; the announcement didn’t exactly clue us in as to what we should expect.
“We’re trying to do great things and BioShock on mobile promises to offer a whole new gaming experience and unmatched excitement amongst mobile gamers the world over,” said Sean Malatesta, CEO of IG Fun. “BioShock is a special game in its genre; it brings an element of conflicting morals which has an impact on the storyline, and, among other things, on the difficulty of the game itself.”
So look out for BioShock coming (we don’t know when) to mobile phones near you. I guess.
