"Bioshock 2" Delayed Until 2010

The buzz machine has been firing on all cylinders for the past few months over the fall release of "Bioshock 2," including shipments of records, paper dolls, and misc promotional materials to media outlets. Unfortunately, the news broke yesterday that even with such strong hype, we're going to have to wait just a bit longer to get our hands on the game, specifically the (I'm sure intentionally) vague "2010 fiscal year."

The decision to shift a release date is never an easy one, especially with a product as highly anticipated as BioShock 2," Take-Two CEO Ben Feder said in a financial release. "We felt that it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve."

I'm surprised, but not overly shocked. Delays in movies usually mean trouble, but delays in games can mean the opposite. Extra development time is never a bad thing, especially on a game that's a follow up to what's sure to be a cult classic in the original "Bioshock." I for one can wait, and I may actually enjoy having some extra cash in my pocket this holiday season.

If you're still hungry for all of the "Bioshock 2" tidbits you can get your hands on, there's always Something in the Sea for you to check out. (See what I did there?)
