According to 2K Games, Dark Sector developer Digital Extremes has partnered with 2K Marin, 2K Boston and 2K Australia to help optimize BioShock for the PlayStation 3.

"By partnering with Digital Extremes, 2K Games is delivering a fully optimized experience that takes advantage of the PLAYSTATION 3 system hardware," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Bringing Digital Extremes on board allows us to continue to deliver the best experience possible to our fans."



For a quick history lesson, Digital Extremes experience reaches back 15 years, including development on such titles as: Dark Sector, Pariah, Unreal Tournament 2004 and 2003, and the original Unreal.

"When 2K approached us to assist with development on BioShock for the PlayStation 3, it was a no-brainer," said James Schmalz, CEO and founder of Digital Extremes. "You really can't ask for a more exciting, technically impressive world to work in than Rapture, and the incredible knowledge and talent between the 2K studios and our team at Digital Extremes is unprecedented. The collaboration on this project will make the PlayStation 3 sing with Big Daddy goodness and Little Sister 'thank you's'."

BioShock is expected to release sometime this October. Stay tuned to for more information.
