2K and Irrational Games have today confirmed the launch date for BioShock Infinite, and goodness knows, it's been a long time coming. Playing as Pinkerton agent, Booker DeWitt, you're tasked with rescuing Elizabeth, a girl with incredible powers, who's being held captive in Columbia and relentlessly hunted by the enigmatic Songbird.

“After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition,” said Irrational Games' Creative Director, Ken Levine. “BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on it.”

BioShock Infinite will be releasing in North America on October 16th, 2012 and released internationally on October 19th, 2012. So now you know. Pencil it into your diaries and mark your calendars, people!

the original Bioshock is one of the best stories I have ever played through, it would be an honour to get this one on DAY ONE! :D

Personally, it's my most anticipated game of the year. I adored the first one and this looks amazing from what I've seen, although it's going to take some doing beating the setting of Rapture.

I have a feeling that Bioshock infinite is going to be game of the year for 2012. I read in playstation magazine that the game (playstation version only) will come with the original Bioshock. If this is true it's on my pre-order list.

I've never been more immersed in any media- book, movie, or game- than I was in BioShock. I will never forget the first five minutes of the game and the first time I encountered a Big Daddy. I've never been more fascinated by a game, and it was the first game that i was genuinely scared at times while playing.

It seems like forever waiting for Infinite. So glad its coming this year. As fascinating as the atmosphere and visuals were in BioShock, i love Infinite being set in the sky. I've always loved those old blimps for some reason.

I want a new trailer! I love the trailers so far and the static radio at the end of each.

So looking forward to this. My bet for GOTY. Every now and then I watch that 10 minute demo from E3 last year, the story [and the way it is delivered with your character interacting with Elizabeth as you explore the world] looks like it's going to be more engrossing than the original bioshock.

Aside from this seeming to be a good game, I want to express how much I love the artstyle for Infinite. October sounds great. By the way, any news on the Vita BioShock game?

Yeah 1999 mode seems cool, shame it's in the same month as FIFA, but I can wait.
