Irrational Games’ 2007 classic first person shooter, “Bioshock,” is headed to the iOS this summer, video game developer 2K Games announced in a press release obtained by Examiner today.

Although there is no information on the game’s eventual price or an official release date, 2K has confirmed that the game will be available later this summer and will feature optimized touch controls and full “Made for iPhone” game controller support. The game will also be compatible on the iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad 4, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 5 devices as well, but will not be supported on older Mac devices. There was no information as to an eventual Android release.

When originally released, “Bioshock” garnered critical acclaim, selling 2.74 million copies on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Mac, as well earning a 10 out of 10 rating from Game Informer, a 9.7 out of 10 from IGN and 9 out of 10 from GameSpot. It also won Game of the Year awards from BAFTA, Game Informer, Spike TV and X-Play and spawned sequels "Bioshock 2" and "Bioshock: Infinite" and "Burial at Sea." A version of "Bioshock" was revealed on the PlayStation Vita in 2011, but was never released. The second episode of "Burial at Sea" is currently in development.
