Irrational Games creative director Ken Levine has reiterated that the development team aren’t thinking about bringing the spectacular Bioshock Infinite to Wii U. Levine says that he has purchased a Wii U, and while he thinks it’s a fun machine, he has no intention of developing for it.
Thanks, Simply G
Over a month ago, a source claimed that Irrational Games’ BioShock Infinite would be getting a Wii U treatment, but that rumor was debunked almost immedietly. For some reason, the same exact rumor is resurfacing, and in an attempt to stop the false claim from spreading, Irrational Games co-founder Ken Levine sent out a Tweet confirming that BioShock Infinite for Wii U has not been announced.
Last week, Mark O’Beirne from Click claimed that BioShock will be released on Wii U, but has since updated his article – in which he admits that a Wii U version of BioShock Infinite has not been confirmed. Click apologizes ”for raising the hopes of those who were delighted upon hearing the news.” BioShock Infinite will be released on February 26th, 2013, for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
According to Click’s Mark O’Beirne, BioShock Infinite will be coming to Nintendo’s forthcoming console. After BioShock Infinite is released on February 26th, 2013 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, O’Beirne claims that developer Irrational Games will begin development of the Wii U version of the game.
Update: Word on the internet suggests this is fake.
Earlier today it was announced that Bioshock Infinite has been delayed until February 2013, possibly paving the way for Rockstar to release its highly anticipated next instalment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise Grand Theft Auto V. Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter believes that the delay wasn’t a chance occurrence, but that Rockstar alerted the publisher that Grand Theft Auto V would be ready by October so Take Two decided to delay Bioshock Infinite. We should find out for sure at E3 next month.
2K Games Ken Levine, as well as art director Nate Wells and lead artist Shawn Robertson, feature in the latest Bioshock Infinite trailer to discuss the game’s heavy hitting enemies, the Motorized Patriot. We heard earlier this week from Nintendo Gamer magazine that Bioshock creator Ken Levine is working on a Wii U game, which they assume is Bioshock Infinite. We should hear more about the game at E3 in June.
Nintendo Gamer magazine is under the impression that Bioshock creator Ken Levine is making a game for Wii U. The magazine assumes it’s Bioshock Infinite, which would make a lot of sense given that the game launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year. Levine hasn’t announced anything for Wii U, but let’s hope that he does.
