No DLC For Bioshock PC

Publisher 2K announced that the Bioshock 2 DLC will not be available on the PC. Elizabeth Tobey, senior manager of interactive marketing, offered an apology while confirming the bad news:

“We will…not be offering Protector Trials and Minerva’s Den on the PC in the future – and I want to say that I’m sorry for the disappointment this will cause to PC players out there.”

No reason was given for the lack of PC support. My heart goes out to all of the dystopian devotees out there.

    There’s been an email campaign underway to pressure Take Two / 2K Games! From one of 2K Elizabeth’s posts it looks like it’s having an impact – PLEASE KEEP THE PRESSURE UP – TAKE TWO MINUTES TO COPY AND PASTE AND SEND, THEN ASK 5-10 OTHER FRIENDS TO DO THE SAME.

    Already seen this pop up in lots of other forums and think we got some momentum…

    ****COPY AND PASTE (AND SIGN!) STARTING BELOW******

    Dear Meg,

    As a Bioshock 2 customer, I am outraged that 2K has decided to not release additional DLC content for the PC (namely Minerva’s Den).

    I find this upsetting for several reasons:

    1) In 2K’s original announcement for Minerva’s Den, 2K stated that a PC release was forthcoming – to backtrack on a statement like that constitutes a broken promise and hurts 2K’s overall credibility and public image for all users.

    2) More importantly, by your actions you’re telling the PC market that we don’t matter. If this is truly how 2K Games feels, then just come out and say so. As PC users we’ll simply make sure not to purchase your games if we’re to be treated as second-class citizens. And as much as we like the Bioshock universe, you should already start cutting back your projections for Bioshock Infinite if this is the half-hearted support you intend to provide for that title as well.

    I do not know what sort of flawed cost / benefit analysis went into your decision-making process, but based on the anger and the number of responses I’ve seen in comments posted on numerous websites (including 2K Forums), I think you are being short-sighted in thinking that a PC release would not be worth the time or effort. I have read the extremely positive reviews for Minerva’s Den and would have even prepaid for the DLC if 2K needed to guarantee a certain level of downloads to ensure profitability. Instead 2K has hurt its own image by handling this issue in such a haphazard fashion.

    I urge you to reconsider your decision and rebuild your trust with your customers – they’re your ultimate stakeholders, not the shareholders, and will decide the ultimate success of Take Two Interactive as a company.

    Best Regards,
    [Your Name]

    It’s made me reconsider my decision to purchase the Borderlands GOTY edition.

    I wonder if its possible to play the PC version of Bioshock 2 and then jump over to the 360 to play the DLC or do you have to play through the 360 campaign to play the DLC
