2K Games and Irrational Games has announced the official release date for Bioshock Infinite today, and it’s set for October 16th, 2012 in North America and October 19th internationally. The title is coming out on the XBOX 360, Playstation 3, and PC, and is set in an alternate America circa 1912. Players will live out the struggles of Booker DeWitt, a former Pinkerton Agent along with his AI companion Elizabeth as they attempt to make their escape from the sky-city of Columbia.
“After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition,” said Ken Levine (@iglevine), Creative Director of Irrational Games (@irrationalgames). “BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on it.”
