Originally announced to come out on October 16, BioShock Infinite’s release date has been pushed, moved for release come February 26, 2013.
Developed by Irrational Games, the announcement came with another one, informing followers of the game that it won’t be shown during the Gamescom or E3 this year.
“[The release] means a bit more waiting, but more importantly, it means an even better BioShock Infinite,” shared Ken Levine, Creative Director, BioShock Infinite.
“The great can be made greater, and we owe it to both ourselves and to you, our fans, to take this opportunity.” Levine further comments.
BioShock is one of the most relatively recent of acclaimed first person shooter games, developed by Irrational Games (which was once known as 2K Boston). Its first version was released for the Xbox and Windows in 2007, with its second version released in 2010.
Working on a “survival horror” genre, the game is set in an alternate 1960’s timeline, putting players in the role of a crashed plane survivor. Players go through exploring the underwater city known as Rapture, battling against mechanical drones and mutants, along with overcoming challenges and obstacles.
The game title has been well received with positive response from critics and gamers, and is even dubbed to have a “morality-based” premise and storyline, a rarity to be found in games of its class. A mobile version of the game was even released, developed by IG Fun.
With its unique storytelling takes, impressive graphics and high-action gameplay, anticipation over the third BioShock will have to require more wait-time for avid followers.
