BioShock 2 Doing All Three Platforms At Once

Rather than the staggered release of the first BioShock, 2K plans on a simultaneous release across all three platforms for BioShock 2.

Speaking to CVG, a 2K spokesperson has confirmed that the plan is to release BioShock 2 on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 at the same time. This is great news for PlayStation 3 owners, who had to wait nearly a year for the original game to show up after the PC and Xbox 360 versions were released.

2K also told CVG that details on BioShock 2's multiplayer component would be coming "soon enough". Soon enough for whom, however, remains to be seen.

Totally expected, and a smart move from 2K. Capcom's strategy of PS360PC is clearly the way to go this gen; staggered releases result in a benefit for nobody but the "early adopter" system. The game ends up selling less total copies because of it. Good work, 2K.

Still doubt I'll actually PLAY this one considering the lack of Ken Levine and the inclusion of multiplayer in what should be a dedicated single-player experience, but I'm sure 2K will make bank.
