Yesterday, Take-Two Interactive announced their decision to push back the release of Bioshock 2 until sometime during the first half of 2010.
“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”
As excited as I am for this game, I can’t help but see this as something of a blessing; the delay may be used to add a little extra polish and I will have one less title to pick up this already-overcrowded-Fall. What do you think?
