BioShock 2 Delayed

The gaming mavens at the Wall Street Journal report BioShock 2 is delayed from the October 30 European release revealed all of six weeks ago. The delay is until Take Two's fiscal 2010, which begins on November 1, 2009, though the safe presumption is the game will be delayed from its planned November 3 release in North America as well. The announcement is accompanied by word that Take Two is revising their financial projections downward, and the statement from Chairman Strauss Zelnick reads: "We recognize that our revised outlook for the balance of fiscal year 2009, due to both internal and external factors, is a disappointment. That said, we concluded that moving the release of 'BioShock 2' into fiscal year 2010 was the right decision for the product." There's an additional comment on Kotaku (thanks nin) where Take Two says the delay is to "provide additional development time for the title."

A delay for further development is usually a good thing.

Bioshock1 with the difficulty patch moved the intended gameplay of moral choices and consequences out of the discard bin and into the game. Without it, I would never have played it again and again. Its a shame that this happened post-release and from a third party, because it would have improved the gameplay immensely for many people.
