What's Another Month?
BioShock Infinite has been delayed yet again, pushing back the release date to March 26th, 2013. Irrational Games boss Ken Levine told IGN that the extra month will be used for last-minute "polish and bug fixing."
"You know, 'let’s make that narrative scene that much better," Levine explained. "Let’s do another pass on the timing of that scene. Let’s do another balance pass.’ It’s a game we could have shipped in February. It just wouldn’t be the game that we think the fans deserve. And that doesn’t mean it was far off from that, but they deserve what they deserve. And when we ask people to pony up a lot of money for this game, we have to feel confident that we’re giving them something that they deserve.”
“I knew I was going to take some slings and arrows about it, but I always just said ‘look, at the end of the day, the slings and arrows will go away. The game will last forever."
BioShock Infinite was originally slated to release in October 2012 before its initial delay, and recently made headlines due to a popular promotion not being made available in Europe.
