BioShock on iOS Temporarily Removed from App Store for iOS 9 Incompatibility; 2K Working on a Fix

on September 25, 2015 11:11 AM

Those that wanted to experience one of last-generation’s most acclaimed titles, BioShock, were able to do so on-the-go with the game’s iOS port released by 2K last year, though with the recent introduction of iOS 9 to Apple mobile devices, the game has been temporarily removed from purchase in the process.

2K Games provided a statement following reports that the iOS port of BioShock was removed from the iOS App Store, with the publisher clarifying that its removal is to provide a stable version with the more recent versions of iOS as BioShock on the platform is incompatible with versions 8.4 and higher. 2K detailed in its statement:

“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.”

While it may not be available at the moment for those looking to take their journey in Rapture on-the-go, you will at least be able to return to the game once a fix is provided for the iOS version in the near future.

BioShock is available for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac – the iOS version of the game is currently being updated for support with more recent versions of iOS and was removed from the App Store temporarily.
