Ken Levine, co-founder of Irrational Games, announced today that the studio’s hotly-anticipated BioShock: Infinite has gone gold.
Levine took to the Irrational blog to confirm the news:
“Today, I’m happy to announce that the game has gone gold. What that means is that it has been approved by both Sony and Microsoft (and the PC Gods, natch) to be sent to the manufacturing guys to load up fleets of trucks with BioShock Infinite and be driven to a store near you on March 26th.”
“The total cost of the game was five years, 941 billion Klingon darseks (plus tip), 47 camels, a cranberry flan, and the blood, sweat, and tears of the Irrational Team.”
BioShock: Infinite abandons the underwater trappings of Rapture, and takes players to the floating city of Columbia. Here, gamers take control of agent Booker DeWitt, who has been tasked with rescuing a mysterious young woman named Elizabeth in the midst of a civil war.
The shooter is due for release globally on March 26, 2013.
