Finally, the much-anticipated “BioShock Infinite” has officially gone gold. As announced through the official website of Irrational Games on Feb. 19, the newest installment to the “BioShock” franchise has finally completely finished its development cycle. This title can now proceed on to its manufacturing stage, making its way to store shelves on March 26 for the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3.
Speaking on the development of “BioShock Infinite,” Irrational explains that when they “first announced BioShock Infinite, we made a promise to deliver a game that was very much a BioShock experience, and at the same time something completely different. And our commitment to making good on that promise, no matter what, has been our driving force for the last three years or so. You, the fans, have been incredibly patient with us. You shared your hopes and wishes for the game with us, and you kept the faith.”
“The total cost of the game was five years, 941 billion Klingon darseks (plus tip), 47 camels, a cranberry flan, and the blood, sweat, and tears of the Irrational Team. Nobody has ever built a game quite like this. It’s a shooter, but a shooter that brings you to very uncomfortable and dangerous places. I can’t demand that you play the game; I can promise you, however, that once you have, it will be an experience you won’t soon forget.”
We will soon be able to see if this title truly lives up to its expectations, as fans will finally be able to get their hands on “BioShock Infinite” on March 26. For those interested, we have listed a few screenshots taken from “BioShock Infinite” in the slideshow above this article.
