PC gamers hoping to experience BioShock 2's downloadable content might just be out of luck. In a post on its message boards, 2K Games announced that it has scrapped development for two expansions, The Protector Trails and Minerva's Den – one of which has been available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 since August. The company also shared a few details about a forthcoming patch for the console versions.
"We are planning patches for the 360 and PS3 to fix some functionality issues, but they will not drastically change gameplay (and I'll post the patch notes when I get them - these two items are still in with QA.) We will also not be offering Protector Trials and Minerva's Den on the PC in the future - and I want to say that I'm sorry for the disappointment this will cause to PC players out there," said 2K's Elizabeth Tobey.
The announcement comes as many question the state of PC gaming and criticize developers for increasingly favoring consoles. Disgruntled community members asked for the reason behind 2K's decision, but the company didn't reveal much, simply blaming "timing and technical issues" for the cancellation.
