In a press release Piranha Bytes announced that the movie "Offline - Are you ready for the next level?" for which Piranha Bytes created the gaming sequences will be released in cinemas soon. The release date is the 23th february 2017 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Whether the movie will be released in other countries is still unknown though. It's Piranha Bytes first participation in a film. "Offline" is bridging "a bridge between the film and gaming industry as the first transmedial project".

In the press release it is stated: "[...] The film succeeds in perfectly reflecting the life between virtual reality and reality. This in a fast, cheeky and amusing narrative gives it the potential to not only be perceived as a genre film, but to become an absolute cult movie for gamers." [translated]

The film is about two young gamers (played by Moritz Jahn and Mala Emde) whose accounts get hacked in an online game and who now have to find their way in the real world on their search for their virtual alter egos. The humorous movie was already able to win several youth prizes. "Offline" is going to be released by the production company Rat Pack Entertainment ("Fach Ju Göhte") in collaboration with Little Dream Entertainment. The film is the first work by director Florian Schnell.
