2K Games recently scrubbed BioShock’s existence from the App Store. Not only is it currently unavailable for download, but people who purchased the game can’t re-download it, either. The news understandably stirred up a lot of controversy, as the port is barely a year old, and typically commanded a premium price of $14.99 USD on the App Store.
Jeff Scott of Slide to Play reached out to 2K for an answer. He was put in touch with Jaime Jensen, the Senior Communications Manager of 2K Games. According to Jensen, BioShock is coming back, but not until certain issues with iOS compatibility are fixed:
2K recently provided inaccurate information to customers surrounding removal of BioShock for iOS from the App Store. 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.
Nothing to do now except slam a Plasmid in your arm and wait.
