Just Announced: Bioshock Infinite Delayed Until 2013
Getting excited for Bioshock Infinite? Were you all ready to camp outside of your favorite retailer on October 15th like I was? Well unfortunately we are all going to have to wait a little while longer.
Today game director Ken Levine posted a message on the Infinite website stating that the game is being pushed back to February 26, 2013. Levine stated that “specific tweaks and improvements will make Infinite into something more extraordinary.” He also goes on to explain how this is similar to the original Bioshock:
“I won’t kid you: BioShock Infinite is a very big game, and we’re doing things that no one has ever done in a first-person shooter. We had a similar experience with the original BioShock, which was delayed several months as our original ship date drew near. Why? Because the Big Daddies weren’t the Big Daddies you’ve since come to know and love. Because Andrew Ryan’s golf club didn’t have exactly the right swing. Because Rapture needed one more coat of grimy Art Deco.”
What is even worse is that Infinite will not be showcased at E3 or GamesCom this summer. According to Levine: “That way, the next time you see our game, it will be essentially the product we intend to put in the box.”
