In Australia, the economic crisis hasn’t been treating our video games industry quite well, with very few big publishers actually staying put. 2K Games have been one of those publishers, but for some time, rumours developed of layoffs at the Canberra studio. Actually, it seems that the opposite is happening. Not only has the studio re-introduced the name 2K Australia, but their experience in the Bioshock games have been rewarded as they have received work on the latest game in the Bioshock world, Bioshock Infinite.
According to MCV Pacific, this news came from an employee of the studio. The studio was working with 2K Marin, under that name, on teh game XCOM. It seems that work on that has been halted in favour of Infinite, which is turning out to be a fantastic and creative game. What section of the game they are working on is currently unknown. This is great news for the studio since those rumours emerged. Maybe those particular rumours can now be put to bed as the studio works hard on one of the most anticipated games of 2012.
