2K Games has announced today that Irrational Games’ much anticipated Bioshock Infinite will drop out of the sky this October. North America gamers will get it on October 16, while the rest of the world will have to wait for October 19. The game will come out for  the Xbox 360, Ps3 and PC.

After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition,” said Ken Levine, Creative Director of Irrational Games. “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 takes place before the events in the original Bioshock and puts players in the role of Booker DeWitt, a private detective sent to the floating city of Columbia to find a lady named Elizabeth and save her from a war going on between to rival factions.
