Back in March, Irrational Games announced the release date for Bioshock Infinite, setting it for October 16 of this year. Well, they announced yesterday that the game has been delayed until next year. Luckily they did set a new release date: February 26, 2013. 

Ken Levine, who is the creative director and co-founder of Irrational Games, said,

When we announced the release date of BioShock Infinite in March, we felt pretty good about the timing. Since then, we've uncovered opportunities to make Infinite into something even more extraordinary. Therefore, to give our talented team the time they need to deliver the best Infinite possible, we've decided to move the game's release to February."

With no word on what they uncovered, I hope it's good. Four months is just about enough to enrage the fanboys, but it really isn't too long. You can read the press release here.
