October launch for BioShock: Infinite

BioShock: Infinite will finally be released in October, it has been confirmed.

After a mere five years in development, Take-Two Interactive subsidiary 2K has confirmed that BioShock: Infinite will finally be with us in October.

The sequel to the popular BioShock was on the drawing board soon after the original launched to much acclaim back in 2007.

It was not until August 2010 that 2K confirmed the game was on its way, releasing a few teaser shots to eager gamers.

Then followed long period of no news and frustration, until 2K finally confirmed it is on the home stretch.

BioShock: Infinite will go on sale on October 16th in North America but the rest of the world will have to wait until October 19th. Although after five years, a three-day wait is almost insignificant.

Ken Levine, creative director of developer Irrational Games, explained just what the firm has been up to all this time, revealing that the sequel will be much bigger than the original.

"After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition," he said.

"BioShock: Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can't wait for fans to get their hands on it."

Irrational Games has previously promised to "shock, immerse, amaze and create an experience that blows gamers' minds" with BioShock: Infinite.

A recent Destination PlayStation event revealed that Irrational has also worked to incorporate some 3D effects into the game. It is still not clear whether this will include gameplay or just dramatic sequences, but it is in there.

The original was set in an alternate 1960, putting the player in the role of plane crash survivor Jack, who must explore the underwater city of Rapture and battle the mutants and mechanical drones that populate it.

Irrational described as a "spiritual successor" to its System Shock series.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801308833-ADNFCR
