BioShock 2 Gets Name Change, Won't Feature Co-Op

BioShock was easy to name. It was named BioShock. But BioShock 2 was originally known not as BioShock 2, but BioShock 2: Sea Of Dreams. Kind of naff. Which probably explains why it's been changed.

A spokesperson for BioShock publisher 2K has said "You won't be seeing ‘Sea of Dreams' moving forward, just ‘BioShock 2.". Suits us. Not only was the name a bit silly, but it's nice to know that, as we march through 2009, we won't have to write about another damn sequel with a colon halfway through its name.

While we've got your BioShock-themed attention, you should also know something else important to your potential interest in the game. Despite the revelation that BioShock 2 will feature multiplayer, you can stop hoping that means co-op, because according to 2K, the game won't have any.

Leaving us with, what, plasmid-fuelled deathmatches?
