In an update to our Bioshock iOS story, it looks like we haven’t seen the last of the game. While 2K customer support may have given the impression that the game will no longer be available this is not the case.
The problem with Bioshock iOS is with any device using update 8.4 or above. GameInformer have been able to get a statement from 2K about the situation and it appears that the game will be back:
“2K recently provided inaccurate information to customers surrounding removal of BioShock for iOS from the App Store,” the representative told us. “BioShock is currently incompatible with iOS versions 8.4 and higher, and as such, is temporarily removed for purchase from the App Store. 2K is fixing the compatibility issue, and when resolved, will place BioShock back on the App Store for purchase. Customers who already own BioShock may continue playing the game with iOS version 8.3 or earlier. 2K regrets the initial customer service error and looks forward to delivering an updated version of BioShock for iOS in the near future.”
So there you have it, when the game is finally fixed then it will be brought back onto the App Store for people to be able to purchase. Thankfully, now that this has been cleared up, fans of the Bioshock games will know they can once again play the game.
While having to remove the game from the App Store does show the severity of the problems the game is having, it is still a positive move. While the customer support message may have caused some confusion at least people are no longer trying to download a broken product.
