In an open letter confirming the gold status, game director Ken Levine thanked fans for being "incredibly patient".

"When we first announced BioShock Infinite, we made a promise to deliver a game that was very much a BioShock experience, and at the same time something completely different," he said.

"And our commitment to making good on that promise, no matter what, has been our driving force for the last three years or so.

"You, the fans, have been incredibly patient with us. You shared your hopes and wishes for the game with us, and you kept the faith."

He continued: "Nobody has ever built a game quite like this. It's a shooter, but a shooter that brings you to very uncomfortable and dangerous places.

"I can't demand that you play the game; I can promise you, however, that once you have, it will be an experience you won't soon forget.

"Who is Booker, and what is the debt that drives him to Columbia? What are Elizabeth's powers and why has she been locked up since she was a child? Why does Booker have the letters "AD" branded into his right hand? And what, in God's name, is the Songbird.

"Columbia is a city teeming with mystery. I'm glad to say that one mystery is over - on March 26, you will be able to play BioShock Infinite."

Irrational Games studio head Ken Levine recently hyped the game's ending, saying it's "nothing you've actually experienced in a video game before".

BioShock Infinite was originally slated for release in October 2012, but has run into several delays and will now arrive on March 26.

It will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
