Take-Two representatives have announced that Boston based BioShock developer Irrational Games has been renamed 2K Boston, and that its Canberra, Australia branch (Freedom Force, now working on the PC version of BioShock) will henceforth be known as 2K Australia. Take-Two says that the changes "symbolize the studios’ further integration into the 2K Games family following their outstanding performance on BioShock." The publisher also says that its 2K Games label has "fostered the studio’s growth by substantially investing in its people," giving 2K Boston the means to double its studio size since its 2005 acquisition. Said studio head Ken Levine, “We’re proud to be part of the 2K Games family and enjoy the new opportunities and artistic freedoms this strengthened relationship provides. The name change signifies our growing position as a central part of 2K Games, and we plan to ensure our future titles continue to set new standards of quality and innovation for the industry.”
