BioShock 2 release pushed to fiscal 2010

The joy of running around as a Big Daddy will have to wait, as Take-Two Interactive has decided to push back the release date of BioShock 2.

In a released financial report, Take-Two has decided to release the title to the 2010 fiscal year, instead of the predicted fiscal 4th quarter 2009. The report states the reason for the delay is for “additional development time for the title”.

Ben Feder, CEO of Take-Two, commented in the financial release that “The decision to shift a release date is never an easy one,” and the company “felt that it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve.”

Considering that developers are still coming onto the project, it shouldn’t be too surprising BioShock 2 is more likely to release in 2010. Still, it always hurts when a big game is pushed back, for publishers and gamers alike.
