Double Bioshock news for the price of one.. however, one is good news, the other, some may consider bad. Bioshock Infinite, the third console Bioshock game has been pushed back to February 2013 to allow “new opportunities” for unique gameplay to be added. The Vita Bioshock has also apparently received a release date…
2K Games announced today that BioShock® Infinite from Irrational Games is now planned to launch worldwide on February 26, 2013.
Ken Levine, Creative Director of Irrational Games, stated, “When we announced the release date of BioShock Infinite in March, we felt pretty good about the timing. Since then, we’ve uncovered opportunities to make Infinite into something even more extraordinary. Therefore, to give our talented team the time they need to deliver the best Infinite possible, we’ve decided to move the game’s release to February.”
In this first-person shooter, the player assumes the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, who is sent to Columbia to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned there since childhood. He develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so they may escape from a city literally falling from the sky. DeWitt learns to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harnesses the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.
In the news about the Vita Bioshock, a retailer, Zavvi, have added the date of 7th September to their pre-order page for the game. Bioshock Vita was expected to be released after infinite, however, now that infinite is delayed, the Vita version may have been brought forward.
This may also just be speculation from Zavvi, so, take it with a pinch of pepper.. did I say that right?
Anyway, stick with us…
