It's gonna be fucking Kinect support, watch.

More time to polish and work on the game is always better, time is always a limited resource for game developers.

Multiplayer? Please God...

#156 Posted by Dragonraider (2 posts) -

oh man... hope they use the time well for more polish

Well at least there will be AC3, Borderlands 2, Black Ops 2 which looks pretty cool and being different from the usual COD repetitive crap. In a way since AC3 and especially Borderlands 2 which will be incredibly long play through, having Bioshock Infinite pushed back will give less stress on completing the others games too quickly.

@Gamer_152: agreed, but its good they arent rushing it out like another call of duty or assassins creed.

That really wasn't the direction Irrational were going in with it anyway. Bioshock has thankfully not yet veered anywhere near that territory of annual release, in fact the very large majority of game series haven't. It's just the few examples we have seen of series that do, happen to be very popular.

I betcha it is.

It might even be awesome. Some good skyhooking maps would be fun.

I hope this doesn't become Duke Nukem Forever again though, as I actually like Bioshock.

I feel like some people are lacking perspective.

Maybe the opportunities are next gen systems?

I wonder if it has anything to with the PS Move features he talked about at E3

#165 Posted by dabobsta (27 posts) -

Not really worrying. My tears will dry on their own.

4 months, 14 years, what's the difference?

#170 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

New opportunity?

Kinect support. YOUR WELCOME.

#171 Posted by HadesTimes (802 posts) -

Oh well, maybe I'll be done playing Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2 by then....Maybe...

#172 Posted by briansanderson (133 posts) -

Just more time for Borderlands 2 now. Will patiently wait until they feel this title is ready for release. If it is anything like the quality of Bioshock 1 then it will be a gem anyways.

#173 Posted by nyv (60 posts) -

Max Payne 3, Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2. I'm set up till the end of the year. Who needs diversity?!

#174 Posted by DougCL (208 posts) -

whatever those dudes need to do, man.

Don't fail me, Ken Levine.

#176 Posted by MankMachinery (44 posts) -

They're putting a new engine on it?

#177 Posted by Aaron_G (1610 posts) -

I am fine with this.

#178 Posted by Max_Cherry (1129 posts) -

Ohh Alex... I want you to break all the gaming industries bad news to me with your snarky titles.

#179 Posted by AxleBro (797 posts) -

HOORAY!

#180 Posted by Elyk247 (365 posts) -

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

This is truly upsetting.

#181 Posted by Begilerath (175 posts) -
@klimdeeni: ok, that's cool. But are you sure about The Last of US? what the hell has Sony for the end of the year then?
#182 Posted by ADAMWD (561 posts) -

Levine's wording makes it sound like they might be adding some form of mutiplayer. He has always said in the past that putting effort into making multiplayer would only be worth it if they could come up with something wildly different and worth playing.

The wording, "uncovered opportunities to make Infinite into something even more extraordinary" appears to match that sentiment, and now they'll need the extra time to flesh out the multiplaer/co-op.

Obviously, this is extreme speculation on my part, and it is most likely more time to improve the story/gameplay/whatever.

#183 Posted by Det1 (190 posts) -

I just hope it's genuinely irrational polishing the game up rather than say, 2k finding the material covered in it too controversial and forcing them to tone it down.

#184 Posted by weegieanawrench (1934 posts) -

More time for Borderlands 2 and Blops 2 I suppose.

FUCK! FUCK! FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

#188 Posted by Binman88 (3684 posts) -

Well, the world ends this year, so I guess it will be an INFINITE amount of time before this game comes out.

Because it won't, because the world ends.

Infinite.

Up top guys, come on.

#189 Posted by CitizenKane (10501 posts) -

No Alex, I did want to play BioShock Infinite this year.

#190 Posted by RichieJohn (525 posts) -

Still not finished Bioshock and I want to play Bioshock 2 after that so I'm more than happy to wait.

#197 Posted by IronScimitar (478 posts) -

Wasnt concerned about it anyway.

#198 Posted by ikabubu (201 posts) -

GOD...DAMN...IT...

#199 Posted by Branthog (7340 posts) -

I couldn't care less. I like BioShock, but I'm in no hurry to play more. In fact, I can say that about 80% of the games coming out this year or next even for games I do like.

#200 Posted by Anlino (80 posts) -

I actually did a proper "aww" when I read the title.
