2K Australia to collaborate on BioShock Infinite with Irrational

2K Australia has been confirmed to MCV that they’re collaborating with Irrational Games on BioShock Infinite.

The studio will leave their current project, the recently delayed XCOM, to work with Ken Levine and his team on the forthcoming BioShock iteration – the third in the franchise. Irrational worked with the 2K Games-owned studio on the first installment in the series.

2K Australia were previously known as 2K Marin but have had their studio title reverted back to 2K Australia following several name changes.

BioShock Infinite is currently scheduled for a release in 2012, while XCOM will see a launch sometime during Q1, 2013.
