Bad bad news today on the BioShock home front. As we found out from Shacknews, BioShock 2 will be pushed back until sometime in the 1st 6 months of 2010.
“[BioShock 2’s delay is] not related to any specific platform or any specific element of it,” the company later said of the forthcoming PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game. “Generally there are some development issues that we need to deal with.”
Read on to see the press release from Take Two.. Take-Two today announced that BioShock 2 has been delayed to a new release date in its 2010 fiscal year.
While the game’s original release date of November 3 technically fits into the beginning of the year–which begins on November 1, 2009–the company implied a further delay to an unspecified date.
“We concluded that moving the release of BioShock 2 into fiscal year 2010 was the right decision for the product,” said Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick. “We believe the result will be a more compelling consumer experience and a better performing product in the marketplace.”
“The decision to shift a release date is never an easy one, especially with a product as highly anticipated as BioShock 2,” added Take-Two CEO Ben Feder. “We felt that it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve”
