A new AI character is about to join the cast of Bioshock Infinite, according to a 2K artist whose CV mentions he’s been "providing animation and R&D for a new AI companion character”.

"It feels like at this point Sony kind of gets the notion that they are not a necessity,” according to Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail. "They are not a requirement for an indie developer to be successful. If Sony doesn’t want to play ball, people can go to a number of other platforms and be successful on those. We can go to Steam, we can go to iOS, we can go to any of th ... Read more »
