BioShock 2 Dated for November 3 Release

For many gamers, BioShock was the game of the year for 2008. Despite being released in a particularly slow time of the year (summer) BioShock stuck as being one of the best shooters on the PC, Xbox 360 and eventually the PS3.

Of course, any good game demands a sequel and Take-Two Interactive today announced during a financial conference call that BioShock 2 will hit North American gamers on November 3. Europe will get it a bit earlier, hitting October 30.

While Take-Two hasn’t made anything official yet, it’s expected that BioShock 2 will hit the same three platforms as the first game did – but there could still be a timed exclusive deal in the works. Hopefully we’ll hear more about that at E3.

The best look we have now is from this extensive gameplay footage of BioShock 2 from Creative Director Jordan Thomas.

    I got Bioshock a while ago, but it was too much for me.
    Now that I'm playing it at 1280x1024 and high settings vs 800x600 low settings, it somehow is less nerve racking. :)
    Fun game so far.

    Looking forward to Bioshock 2.

    this game has a revolutionary state-of-the-art movie type feel to it. The gameplay, graphics, physics, sounds... its all a kicka$$ package.
