BioShock Infinite Delayed

Irrational Games announces that previews of BioShock Infinite are appearing now that some press have had some hands-on time with the upcoming shooter sequel. They follow this optimism with word that the game's release has suffered another setback, albeit a small one. After choosing the exact release date of February 26, 2013 after the game's last delay, they now say the game is due precisely one month later:

Work on the game is now down to final polish and bugfixing. In order to give the team a few more weeks of this polish, the release date of BioShock Infinite is March 26th.

We know that this is going to ruffle some feathers. But we’re willing to take the heat to make sure that BioShock Infinite is 100% the game our fans deserve.

It's convenient that the delay means they won't be battling with Crysis 3 and Aliens: Colonial Marines for attention - it also puts them further away from the release of Tomb Raider, Dead Space 3 and SimCity. They'll be up against Metro: Last Light but that's a much smaller franchise being backed by a much smaller publisher. The only fly in the ointment could be GTAV, which is due in Spring 2013 (a vague window).

Wasn't GTA5 already confirmed to come out in March? Or was it May? I'd rather go up against all the other games combined than try to battle GTA's all-encompassing presence.

Since both this and GTA5 are 2K games (and huge multiplatform ones, at that), I wonder if this will cause any change to GTAs release.

I seriously doubt ANYTHING would influence GTA5's release. More the other way around.
