Delay "primarily for polish and bug fixing."

Irrational Games has pushed back the release date of BioShock Infinite a month from its initial February 26 release to March 26. According to creative director Ken Levine (via IGN), the delay is primarily for “polish and bug fixing.”

Many outlets have gone live with new previews of BioShock Infinite today. Here’s a list, if you’re looking for something to read: AusGamers, DestructoidThe Escapist, Eurogamer, EW.com, Examiner, IGN, Joystiq, Kotaku, PCGamer, PlayStation Blog, Polygon, and VideoGamer.

Additionally, Levine commented on the fate of BioShock Vita. Speaking to IGN, he said, “That is in the hands of business people right now. It’s something I’m still interested in, and people ask me that all the time.

“Right now I’m just sort of waiting to see what the business people come up with, and that’s sort of out of my hands at this point. That’s something that I think has a lot of potential. The game idea we have has a lot of potential. It’s just a question of [if] their stars all align.”

    After reading the previews, that’s a-okay. I can wait an extra few weeks since it sounds amazing.

    Take your time, 2013 is fillllled with games already so no need to rush it, i will post this again “Tales Of Xillia” enough said :3. But March seems risky as i think it will be the date for Lightning Returns release.

      Highly doubt that. They will launch anywhere after September. You are forgetting its only just having its first showing and video only in a couple of weeks and they will not skip out on E3 and TGS especially since the latter is the best place to show/try for the Japanese. Plus, it was only in Pre-Alpha months ago.

      Date for GTA 5? now that’s risky yeah.
