BioShock 2 Delay Unrelated To Single Platform Or Feature, Necessary For BioShock's Future

The unexpected delay of BioShock 2 has been given a little more clarity this afternoon, as Take-Two Interactive held a conference call to discuss the news with analysts. Take-Two has clarified BioShock 2 will arrive in the first half of 2010, but provided no further specifics on when BioShock 2 would drop. Spring? Early summer? No idea just yet.

On the call, Take-Two executives categorized the delay of BioShock 2 as being related to development overall (they were called "development issues") and not related to a problem with development in a single platform or related to an individual gameplay feature.

The delay was necessary, argued Take-Two, because BioShock is considered an "extremely valuable franchise" and releasing BioShock 2 before it was ready would do "damage to brand equity and fan loyalty." A subpar BioShock 2 would hurt the "longterm value of the BioShock franchise," reiterating Take-Two's previous views that BioShock 2 is not the end of the BioShock games, but simply a stepping stone to others.

It's somewhat comforting to know there's one less game I'll need to play later this year, and hey, maybe in BioShock 2's place, I'll just have to play BioShock again. There are worst fates.
