Too right! Bioshock was one of the reasons I bought a 6 plus!

This. And Monster Hunter so I'm double screwed. I intentionally didn't start them because I had a 6S+ in the plans but by the time I got my new phone they were both broken.

This is why I never update my iOS devices systematically.
I updated my iPhone to iOS 7 to play Tomb Raider, I updated to iOS 8 to play Grim Fandango. I never updated to iOS 8.4 and beyond to keep playing Bioshock.
I have an iPhone 5S with iOS 8.3 and happy with it.
I also bought an iPad mini 4 but it had natively iOS 9...so no Bioshock for instance.

So I guess it's time to say that Bioshock on iOS 9 isn't going to happen. Dunno why I keept my hopes high for an update.

For those of you participating in the Twittersphere, there is a short poll here about which 2K iOS game you'd like to see patched!

Looks like the poll bit only works from the app, though

Huh? That same message has been on their site for months now.

That looks like a newer article but the message is still essentially EXACTLY THE SAME as the original July support article:

The game has been completely broken since June 30 2015 (when iOS 8.4 was released) and will only work with iOS 8.3.

The mentions of iOS 9 are completely irrelevant. A version was never made available for iOS 9 on the AppStore. The studio responsible for developing the game was shut in October 2015. The 'gameplay issues' referred to are still the same i.e. It will still crash EVERY TIME on load if you're running 8.4 or newer.

This is simply spin by 2K to provide something that looks like an update but actually contains nothing of actual value or news.

These guys should work in politics.

Exactly but the fact that they mention "December of 2015" gives me much more hope,I thought that it was abandoned.
