The wait for irrational games’ follow up to 2007’s Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, gets even harder with the announcement that the game is being delayed by a few weeks to make room for minor improvements and bug fixes.

According to Ken Levine, creator of the Bioshock Franchise, the game will drop on March 26th. The team needed time to fix some minor annoyances and that recent addition, Rod Ferguson, convinced him that the entire team would benefit from additional development time. He admits that the press might beat up on 2K and Irrational for this decision but they believe it was the right choice.

Check out his full comments after the jump. Bioshock Infinite was originally scheduled for release in the fall of 2012 before being moved to February and now to its current March 26th date. It will go up against other March 2013 heavy weights like God of War Accession and Tomb Raider.

Square Enix Teases “New Title” – Possible Star Ocean?

Posted on December 8, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Is a new Star Ocean title in the works from Square Enix? Well, it’s possible. A new teaser site has popped up over on the Square Enix site with words “Star”, “Border War”, and “Divide” on the page. There is a countdown clock that sets the reveal date for next Tuesday, December 11, at 10 p.m. EST.

Currently there has only been one Star Ocean game that has hit this generation of consoles that received mixed responses from the gaming community – weighing in at 72/100 over on Metacritic. Personally, I think it was a pretty solid game. Nothing that would win any game of the year awards but it was fun to play. This is all in speculation that the “New Title” is in fact a Star Ocean game.

Guess it’s a matter of wait and see…until then, we’ll be patiently waiting for that countdown clock to hit zero. Be sure to stay tuned here for more information as it becomes available! Anyone interested in another Star Ocean game or is Mass Effect the only true space rpg for you?
