2K’s will release BioShock Infinite on October 16 in the US and October 19 in the UK and other international regions, the publisher announced today.
The Irrational shooter has been in development for four years on PS3, 360 and PC, but was announced back in August 2010 and has become one of the most anticipated games of 2012.
“After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition,” said creative director Ken Levine.
“BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on it.”
Infinite tells events set before the original BioShock, where you play Booker DeWitt in the skies of Columbia in search of companion Elizabeth in the midst of a civil war between the Founders and Vox Populi.
