In one of the saddest surprise announcements in the gaming world, it has been revealed that "BioShock" and "Bioshock Infinite" developer Irrational Games is shutting up shop after seventeen years.

Ken Levine, creative director and co-founder, has revealed in a statement that the company is essentially downsizing to just a core staff of 15 (from a staff of nearly 200).

That group will begin a new endeavor at Take-Two where they will concentrate on developing "highly replayable, narrative-driven games for the core gamer" and focus exclusively on content delivered digitally.

Irrational's parent company 2K Games will now take over the reins of the BioShock franchise.
