Bioshock for iOS- By 2K Games

This is to remind people that 2K games has said that they would release Bioshock in 2008. I hope this reminds them to keep working on it, because that would be awesome. Sorry this isn't an official update, but hopefully it will be soon.

Well, hopefully they are!! This is the first time I'm even hearing about this though. It's been too quiet.

Yeah I mean I researched it today, and it said they originally had plans to make a mobile version. I hope they go through with it.

I heard this was cancelled a long time ago. I don't have a link. In fact, as I remember it, somebody (And I mean a dev who had the ability to actually do it) basically insisted that an iOS version would be possible, but 2K nixed the idea. It was all related to a potential port of a java version created for regular cellphones. I think this whole thing was a misunderstanding, to be honest. I don't believe Bioshock was ever officially announced for the iOS.

1) I may be wrong and I hope I am, but something that was rumoured in 2008 and isn't here yet most likely won't be coming.

2) Can't say I've seen too many developers from 2K Marin trolling the General Game Discussion and Questions forum on Touch Arcade lately.
