Irrational Games announced today that their highly anticipated title, Bioshock Infinite, was being delayed yet again, but not by much. The game is now scheduled to release on March 26th, exactly one month after the game’s previous release date of February 26th. According to a report on IGN, Creative Director Ken Levine said the game required some additional polishing and bug fixing to deliver an experience worthy of our hard earned money (thanks Ken). This delay is the second one to beset Bioshock Infinite as I am sure most of you remember its original release date of October 2012.
I don’t believe this delay will diminish anyone’s excitement for the upcoming game, but Bioshock Infinite has now entered a fairly crowded month for games including Tomb Raider, Gears of War Judgment, God of War Ascension and a little game called Grand Theft Auto V amongst many other high profile titles. So while excitement may not be in jeopardy, time and money may become an issue for gamers deciding which titles to commit to come March.
What say you reader? Will this delay affect your gaming in the month of March or will you not skip a beat? Let us know in the comments and for everything Bioshock Infinite and gaming keep it tuned to The Gamer’s Abstract.
