2K Marin renamed 2K Australia; working on Bioshock: Infinite


I’ll give them one thing: life is never boring over in 2K Marin. Oops, I mean 2K Australia.

MVC Pacific reports that the Australian arm of developer 2K Marin has been renamed (back!) to 2K Australia; the studio has also been put to work on Bioshock: Infinite alongside sister studio Irrational Games. Irrational’s head Ken Levine had this to say on the matter: “We had a number of open positions on BioShock Infinite. When we found out our former sister studio 2K Australia was becoming available, we thought they would perfectly fill those roles.”

He added, “If every decision was this easy…”

This is the first bit of positive news to come from Canberra in recent times; last month, we reported that 15 2K Marin employees were laid-off. Perhaps this new chain of events can create more jobs in the Australian gaming industry?
