BioShock 2 Delayed into 2010

In a move that will make investors unhappy (those guys who put up money but don’t actually do anything beyond that), Take Two’s latest major franchise is getting delayed into the first half of 2010. Take-Two’s Chairman Strauss Zelnick offered no specific reason for the delay, but stated “internal and external factors” as the cause.

The move puts Take Two into a position where it will be unlikely to make a profit in 2009 with no major releases for the rest of the year. Two of their releases are Grand Theft Auto related, one of them an update of Chinatown Wars and another DLC for GTA IV. Ouch.
