2K Games announced earlier this month that downloadable content of BioShock 2 would not be launched on PC. The developer cited the issues of technical problem and timing, and the PC gamers, naturally, turned into a fit of rage as the Minerva’s Den DLC and The Protector Trails are available only on PS3 and Xbox 360. Now, anger has paid off. The developer has cancelled its plan.
Elizabeth Tobey, representative of 2K Games, said: “We have resumed development… and they will be coming to PC.”
Tobey also explained why earlier the projects were cancelled. She said 2K Games was working in building the Protector Trails, but some unresolved bugs were there, which still persists. She added that this would trigger some type of problems during specific situations during the game. The bug was not fixed on time by the developer and so they had to move on to other projects.
Well, let us thank to the harsh community that forced the maker of BioShock 2 to think over their cancelled project and offer to the PC gamers The Protector Trials this December. More to this, the content will be free.

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.

The first BioShock was detected with a thunderclap with the innovative graphics, the story of Oscar, sound and dubbing of the highest level and above all the atmosphere of the strange underwater city which made this game a masterpiece of 2007.
First released on Xbox 360 and PC, then later on PS3, this game has made it very popular and if you have never played, you are wasting hours and hours of fun overall.. Following up, in BioShock 2, we find that the protagonist is the Big Daddy (a powerful diver), with special powers.
Versatile plot and creative innovation is enough to interest even those who do not nurture any tender feelings for the first-person shooters. Bioshock – one of the most controversial perceived titles in the history of the gaming industry – has left many undiscovered secrets and unresolved issues
