Finally the silence broke. After a long period the team behind BioShock, Irrational Games, has finally announced that they have been working on BioShock: Infinite, a continuation of BioShock.

There were long debate earlier and for years about the next game of Irrational. Of course fans were expecting BioShock from them as BioShock 2 was developed by another studio and without any input from the creative director of Irrational, Ken Levine.

Well, BioShock: Infinite seems to a be a surprise to many, specially to those who are expecting a new IP.

However, the most important thing here is the name of the studio because Infinite going to be a very different game.

There will be some known quantities of earlier two BioShock’s and also the fresh ideas from Levine, as promised. May be it can recapture some of the magic lost since the 2007 debut.

BioShock: Infinite will be released in 2012 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
