‘BIOSHOCK INFINITE’ DLC dropping a new companion character?

BioShock Infinite's Elizabeth.

I want to make a lot of witty comments about the possibility that BioShock Infinite DLC may feature a new companion character. However, two problems arise. First, I’m not really witty. Second, anything I can come up with is quasi-spoilerish and I ain’t going that route.


In Elizabeth, BioShock Infinite gave us the best AI companion since Half-Life 2’s Alyx Vance. For the game’s upcoming DLC, however, it seems we might be getting a new best bud.

The CV of 2K animator Michael Shahan yesterday mentioned (it’s since been removed) that one of his most recent roles was “providing animation and R&D for a new AI companion character” in upcoming BioShock Infinite DLC.

Cue the speculation. Also cue me hoping it’s not another emotionally developed and wonderfully-animated accomplice. This time around, I’ll take one of those giant armoured Abe Lincolns, thanks.
