Straight from the horses mouth.

When we announced the release date of BioShock Infinite in March, we felt pretty good about the timing.​
Since then, we’ve come to realize that some specific tweaks and improvements will make Infinite into something even more extraordinary. Therefore, to give our talented team the time they need, we’ve decided to move the game’s release to February 26, 2013. We wanted to let our loyal (and very patient!) fans know this as soon as possible.​
I won’t kid you: BioShock Infinite is a very big game, and we’re doing things that no one has ever done in a first-person shooter. We had a similar experience with the original BioShock, which was delayed several months as our original ship date drew near. Why? Because the Big Daddies weren’t the Big Daddies you’ve since come to know and love. Because Andrew Ryan’s golf club didn’t have exactly the right swing. Because Rapture needed one more coat of grimy Art Deco.​
The same principle now applies to BioShock Infinite.
What does this mean for you? It means a bit more waiting, but more importantly, it means an even better BioShock Infinite. The great can be made greater, and we owe it to both ourselves and to you, our fans, to take this opportunity.​
We are also going to hold off on showing BioShock Infinite at the big events of the summer, like E3 and Gamescom. That way, the next time you see our game, it will be essentially the product we intend to put in the box. Preparing for these events takes time away from development, time we’re going to use instead to get the best version of Infinite into your hands in February.​
Oh look, another publisher delaying the release because of competition. You were always ready for an October release, but then you got Halo 4 and it kinda shook you. Then it was confirmed that BO2 will release weeks later and that lead you to believe a delay was the right thing to do? Shame on you! The name itself will carry a million sales easily.​
Have faith!​

Bioshock is developed by 2k Games and Take-Two is parent company of Rockstar Games and 2k so was this a deliberate delay to make way for GTA V or what? I think and hope so...

You and your GTA love, weirdo! :tongue:

Who knows, it could be. But I always have this thing that a game is delayed because of other games releasing around the same time.
