BioShock Infinite will be released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 19 in Europe, developer Irrational Games has confirmed.
Ken Levine, president and creative director, said: "After BioShock, we had a vision for a followup that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition. 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.
In January, the studio announced 1999 Mode, which more strictly rations health, weaponry and powers, and requires that players pick specialisations and stick with them for the duration. It was designed in response to a poll on the studio's website.
A post on the PlayStation Blog to announce the release date reveals that the PlayStation 3 version will support the Move controller; further details are promised soon.
