PC gamers often get the short end of the stick when it comes to game releases, with console versions of certain titles (Mass Effect and Mirror's Edge come to mind) beating their PC counterparts to shelves by months. Well, BioShock fans should be happy to learn that the second title in the series will be out for both consoles and PCs simultaneously—at least, so says ComputerAndVideoGames.com.
The site quotes developer and publisher 2K Games as saying it aims to release BioShock 2 simultaneously for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 later this year. The original BioShock came out at the same time on the PC and 360, but it took a couple of months to hit the PS3.
According to a separate report by Shacknews, BioShock 2 will take place ten years after the first game. Unlike the original, this sequel will also include a multiplayer mode, and it will let players mix "plasmids" together and combine them with regular weapons. Oh, and the player will be a Big Daddy.
