BioShock Infinite Release Date Confirmed

2K Games has announced the release date for BioShock Infinite. The highly anticipated sequel will début on October 16th, 2012 in North America and October 19th internationally.

BioShock Infinite takes place in an alternate 1912 America. You take control of Booker DeWitt, an ex Pinkerton agent who is attempting to escape the sky city of Columbia with a woman named Elizabeth.

“After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow-up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition,” said Ken Levine, creative director of studio Irrational Games. “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.”
