Breaking Bad is coming to iOS. No, we’re not talking about Aaron “Jesse Pinkman” Paul signing up for one of Apple’s original TV shows, but rather a new Breaking Bad game coming to mobile devices.
The upcoming Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements is seemingly set during the timeline of the show’s original run. The game features key characters including meth-cooking science teacher Walter White and drug world baddies like Gus Fring, Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut. The game should land on iPhones later this year, b**ch!
“[FTX Games] care as much about the details as our creative team, and I have been very impressed with their commitment to building an authentic extension of the series’ story universe,” show creator Vince Gilligan said. “I think this will be a fun experience for fans, to interact with characters from Breaking Bad in a completely new way.”
There are, unfortunately, few other details about the game at this stage. All we know is that you’ll be dealing with various “moral dilemmas and volatile personalities” while trying to score a profit on your illegal side hustle. So, pretty much the show, then.

At least in terms of subject matter, there’s plenty of awesome potential for a game based on the Sergio Leone-meets-Scarface world of Breaking Bad. We are a little cautious, however, since the game will supposedly be free to play.
While we’ll hope for the best, that could mean a whole lot of in-app purchases to make this the adult equivalent of The Simpsons: Tapped Out. Then again, it could be the next Fortnite.
In addition to Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements, FTX Games says it is “currently in development on Criminal Minds: The Mobile Game, two titles based on AMC’s The Walking Dead and other games based on major entertainment properties.”
