PC will get BioShock 2 patch

Written by David Stellmack
2kgames

Will get both DLC packs, as well
In a strange reversal of its previous stance, 2K Games has announced that they are going to finish the final patch for the PC version of BioShock 2 and release it. The decision is actually very surprising, as the company previously announced that they would not be releasing the final patch to correct a number of issues on the PC platform. The final patch has already been released for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 console platforms.

The company didn’t get into much detail as to why they decided to change their previous decision, but the company claims that the outcry from PC fans following the announcement was enough to change their mind. The company claimed that they “…have always tried to keep an open dialog with gamers and listen to what they have to say,” and this is the reason that they have elected to not only finish the final patch for the game on the PC, but to also release both download content packs on the PC.

Both the Minerva’s Den and Protector Trials downloadable content packs will be released and sold for the PC version of BioShock 2 after all. The patch, as well as the two downloadable content packs, will still have to go through the Microsoft certification process, and the PC version of BioShock 2 is a Games for Windows title. 2K expects that they will obtain certification from Microsoft in the coming weeks and it will then be made available. It just goes to show that not all feedback to a developer falls on deaf ears.
