Gamasutra has a wrap of the travails of Canberra’s computer games studio, recently renamed 2K Australia.
2K Australia was then merged with 2K Marin early in 2010 when the two studios began work on XCOM together, while 2K Boston was renamed back to Irrational Games.
Now according to a report from news website MCV, the studio has once again been separated and renamed 2K Australia, and is working on Bioshock Infinite alongside Irrational Games.
Bioshock Infinite, revealed last year, is due for release sometime in 2012.
In an interview with Gamasutra this year, Irrational Games’ Ken Levine said of the game, “We basically develop our games by failing… We’ll just throw things away all the time.”
For those who were interested (rather than horrified) by the concept of a first person shooter XCOM the wikipedia page still talks about a 2013 release date.
