Though it was easily my most disappointing game last year, I still liked Bioshock Infinite. It told a cool story, had a fantastic setting and interesting characters; I just wish the actual gameplay hadn’t devolved in to being a pure shooter. Far more disappointing is the knowledge that its developer Irrational Games has effectively been closed.
Their last release will be the second bit of the Burial at Sea DLC for Bioshock Infinite, which aptly comes full circle and goes back to the undersea dystopia of Rapture. In this little Q7A, the exiting staff remember their proudest moments. Watch the game’s animators, artists and writers discussing their favourite parts of the DLC. It’s pretty sad stuff, and is part of the #Irrationaljobs movement to help find all of the displaced staff new employment.
Warning: There may be a spoiler or two.
Burial at Sea Episode 2 is coming on 25th March, and ties up loose ends from the last DLC, along with some remaining threads from the very first Bioshock.
Cheers, Irrational Games. I very much doubt that it’s the last we’ll see of Bioshock or its universes – I just have to wonder how good they’ll actually be.
