“When we announced the release date of BioShock Infinite in March, we felt pretty good about the timing,” said Levine. “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, weve decided to move the game’s release to February.”

  1. Yes! More time to complete the backlog, including my Bioshock Platinum. Perhaps Bioshock Vita will be released in September then?!

    • Agreed. I have a worrying number of games from 2008 that I still haven’t finished :S

      • :O

        I Platinumed Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune this week. Only took me 4 years, 3 weeks and 17 hours according to psnprofiles.com

      • Whoa! Must be the time consuming Platinum EVER. :O

      • Indeed :) My Bioshock Platinum (if I ever get it) migh be even longer! :O

    • Well, I have a massive backlog aswell, but this was one of my most anticipated titles…. guess it will continue being just that for a while longer.

    • There is no way the Vita game is coming out first.

      • You’re probably right, was just a thought. The Vita audience is rather limited, and it might sell even less if Vita owners have already bought Infinite on other formats. Again, I’m probably wrong but it’s a possibility.

    • Currently in the middle of Crysis, Killzone 3, inFamous 2, Resistance 3, Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Mafia 2, Dead Space 2, Resi 4 and on my 4th play-through of Bully :p. To be fair though, I made progress by finishing GTA4 after 4 years, MGS4 after another 4 years!
      Oh…my life…

  2. Nothing to do with being a casualty of BlOps2 Vs Warface BulletShooter then?

    Good for gamers wallets + it will own Feb, even if a new Killzone is out then.

    • I think I might retreat to my room in September and try to avoid ‘Warface shooter 9’. But this delay is good in some ways, since there’s no drought of games.

  3. What? No!

    Ah well, guess that dispels the Bioshock Vita rumours for this September then

  4. I’m glad they are putting it back to add stuff (apparently), better than releasing it either full of bugs or with the rest of the content following up as DLC after a month.

  5. Ah man was really looking forward to this game aswel ah well vita version would be as just as exciting as console if it’s true about zavvi listing

  6. Simply
    “BUGGER!”

  7. This is good I think. Not like DICE/EA where they bring a half made game out on a date, just to please the shareholders.

  8. GTA….?

    • that is one game I hope to have by the end of the year.

  9. Oh noes! :O

    Don’t want to wait, but will if it’s a better game/experience. Was getting suitably hyped about it after seeing a vid the other day too. :(

  10. Nooooooooooooooo!
    But if it means an even better game,it’ll be worth it in the end!

    • This ^
      especially the Noooooooooooooo part
