‘Allo allo allo, what’s all this then? Zavvi has only gone and whacked a September 7 release date on the BioShock game for Vita. The project – which will be a stand alone game, not a port – has gone largely unrevealed, and last we heard, was pretty much on hold while Irrational focuses on October’s BioShock: Infinite – so the date doesn’t seem terribly likely. That said, video game companies sometimes tell lies to make things more fun for everyone. I know right. I was shocked too. We’ve asked 2K what’s up.

“When we started making a game, we don’t tear anything from the headlines. Just like with the first BioShock, I’m not surprised to see that the headlines came back to align more closely with the game. There are certain themes just repeat over and over and over throughout history: it was common in the 30s, in the 50s with the Red Scare. You see these things over and over again, especially during tough financial times. It’s not something that we planned on, it’s just that we’re touching themes that are very core to America and to every country.”
– Ken Levine, speaking to the US PS Blog, on BioShock: Infinite’s highly topical political themes, reiterating their timeless resonance rather than specific parallels. BioShock: Infinite is expected on major platforms in 2012.
