BioShock Infinite takes home 75 E3 awards

Irrational Games’ BioShock Infinite, the third installment in the BioShock franchise and the second to be developed by the original team, was a hot topic at E3. The game took home 75 awards from the show, 39 of which were “Game of Show” awards.

“At this year’s E3, members of the Irrational team were honored to see the amazing games our industry friends and colleagues are producing. And we are thrilled that the gaming media selected BioShock Infinite as a standout title at the show,” said Ken Levine creative director and president of Irrational Games.

Infinite also won the Game Critic Awards’ “Game of Show” award, which 2K describe as “the industry’s most coveted E3 honor.” In 2007, they awarded the original BioShock with the “Best Action/Adventure Game” award.
