BioShock 2 officially announced for 2009

We all knew it was coming (though many of us lamented it), but today Take-Two has officially announced that work on a BioShock sequel is underway. It is currently planned for release in Q4 of 2009.

Nothing has been announced as far as plotline goes, although many people are expecting a prequel that shows the downfall of Rapture. Furthermore, no specific platform has been specified as of yet, so we don't know if BioShock will remain a PC/Xbox 360 exclusive or if the PS3 will get a piece of the action this time around.

So there you have it. BioShock is now officially a franchise, with a little pink ribbon and everything. Still don't know how I feel about this, because I'm definitely in the camp that felt Rapture's back story was already perfectly presented, and that nothing was needed to further conclude its existence either. Strange how normally, news of a sequel makes fans of a game happy, yet this time around there's a lot of concern.

That means you have something very special and very delicate in your hands, Take-Two. Don't screw it up. 

[Thanks, Trevor Green]
