BioShock Infinite dated for October

2K Games has just announced the launch date for its long-in-the-making BioShock Infinite. Booker and Elizabeth’s romp through Columbia will begin this October, on the 16th in NA and the 19th in Europe.

The game should be one that ‘dwarfs the original in scope and ambition’. At least, that’s been Irrational’s goal for the last four years according to creative man Ken Levine. Here’s hoping.

A quick update on the the series as a whole is also provided; the first two games have sold over nine million copies worldwide.
