Back in March, it was announced that BioShock Infinite would be hitting shelves in October, but the game has now been pushed out of 2012 and all the way back to February 2013.
Irrational Game’s creative director, Ken Levine revealed that the game would be pushed back to February 26, 2013 for extra development for new game ideas. He explained, “When we announced the release date of BioShock 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 addition to the news of the day, BioShock’s Infinite will not be shown at E3 or GamesCom. “The next time you see our game, it will be essentially the product we intend to put in the box. Preparing for these events takes time away from development,” Levine said.
Well…that’s a bit disappointing, but hopefully the new opportunities that they are referring to will be worth the wait.
