Your holiday gaming line-up just got a bit less crowded -- Take-Two Interactive has announced that it's moved BioShock 2 from fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 to fiscal 2010. Read: probably next year. 

Unsurprisingly, the publisher cites the need to provided "additional development time for the title," as well as its revised outlet for the the remainder of fiscal 2009, due to lower-than-expected performance. 

"The decision to shift a release date is never an easy one, especially with a product as highly anticipated as BioShock 2," says Chief Executive Officer of Take-Two, Ben Feder. "We felt that it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve. As a result, we will now be launching sequels to several of our strongest franchises -- including BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption -- during the next fiscal year."

It should be noted that "fiscal 2010" for Take-Two starts in November, so there's a chance we could see BioShock 2 by year's end. But you know... any other big plans for this holiday? 

[Update: It's official -- BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3, and Red Dead Redemption -- will all see release in the "first half of calendar 2010," according to Feder in this afternoon's Take-Two financial update conference call.]
