Bioshock Infinite Delayed Until February 2013...And We Cry

Damnit, our most anticipated title of the year has just become one of our most anticipated titles for next year.

Bioshock Infinite was supposed to arrive on October 16, but publisher Take-Two Interactive has announced that the hotly anticipated game has been pushed into next year; February 26, 2013 is the new date.

Irrational Games boss Ken Levine tried to explain the reasoning behind the delay.

"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."

Furthermore, Bioshock Infinite will not be presented at E3 or GamesCom this year. Levine said this so the next time we see it, "it will be essentially the product we intend to put in the box." He added that preparing for such events actually takes time away from development, and they're obviously not interested in wasting time.

We have no doubt that Levine and Co. want to produce the very best adventure possible, so we're not necessarily angry. Just a little sad.

I would rather wait than have it be rushed. The first bioshock was amazing, and I have no doubt this one will be excellent as well.

feb might be a better time for this game. with call of duty coming out less than a month from the time this game would have been out a lot of people might have passed waiting for bathroom ops 2. maybe they decided to make the ps3 and vita versions work together in some way.

hope this game gets 10's when it finally comes out.

There are many titles of interest this year for me. Black Ops 2, AC3,Ncaa Football 13, Far Cry 3. And the possibility of Dishonored being released late Sept. if that rumor holds true. And Tomb Raider listed a Fall 2012 release. May see more about that at E3 because Crystal Dynamics who deals with Tomb Raider will be there. Hitman Absolution release date for this year would be nice too,but might not know until E3 on that. So overall I think from this Summer to next Spring is starting to shape up well.

Yeah loads of potentially great games coming up! Indeed it is. But only BioShock is BioShock.

That's what I was thinking...If they released both games at the same time, while trying to compete against everything else that launches in October...kind of a recipe for disaster isn't it?

At least 2K's going to be having a profitable year in 2013 with this and probably GTA V dropping. Disappointed, true, but I'm cool with that.

I was just thinking this was going to happen the other day. I think it would be under-appreciated if released during the holiday rush!!
