Take-Two Interactive have officially announced that the sequel to the much loved Bioshock, Bioshock 2, will not be released in October has was previously planned.
Instead a much vaguer date of ‘fiscal year 2010’ has been decided on.
Bioshock 2 was due to be released in the UK on the 30th of October and be released worldwide on the 3rd of November. However Take-Two are now saying that it is unlikely that the game will be released before Christmas 2009.
According to take-Two the revised release date was needed "to provide additional development time for the title," which should hopefully mean that the game proves to be even better than it would of been, had it been released in October.
Chairman of Take-Two Strauss Zelnic said that although the changed release date is a disappointment for both gamers and the company itself, it was the right decision to make.
Take-Two CEO Ben Feder said the following in a financial release; "The decision to shift a release date is never an easy one, especially with a product as highly anticipated as Bioshock 2," "We felt that it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve."
