Nooooooooooo! It’s a sad day for gamers. BioShock Infinite, one of the most anticipated games of 2012, has been pushed back to a February 2013 release date.
On BioShock Infinite's official website, developer Irrational Games has announced:
“Since then, we’ve come to realize that some specific tweaks and improvements will make Infinite into something even more extraordinary. Therefore, to give our talented team the time they need, we’ve decided to move the game’s release to February 26, 2013. We wanted to let our loyal (and very patient!) fans know this as soon as possible."
"I won’t kid you: Bioshock InfiniteWhere to buy 699 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... The same principle now applies to BioShock Infinite.”
“We are also going to hold off on showing Bioshock InfiniteWhere to buy 699 at the big events of the summer, like E3 and GamesCom. That way, 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, time we’re going to use instead to get the best version of Infinite into your hands in February.”
