Game publisher Take Two has announced in a recent earnings report that its latest game—BioShock Infinite—has sold "significantly" more in the first month than previous games in the series. The company announced that BioShock Infinite has sold more than 3.7 million copies so far and that there was "solid demand" for the DLC Season Pass for the game. This is especially strange considering the fact that nobody knows what DLC the game will be getting.

Back in April, details had popped up online indicating that one of the DLCs for the game will feature a different companion. Going by the ending of BioShock Infinite, it is clear that the DLC will feature some new character entirely, so a new AI companion wouldn’t be completely out of the question. However, the question we’d like to ask is: who will it be? Of course, Irrational could just take the easy way out and have us play another version of the protagonist Booker DeWitt.
One of the many things about BioShock Infinite that was praised by everyone was the interaction between player character Booker and companion Elizabeth. Both the characters offered a nice contrast against each other, with DeWitt’s cynicism and Elizabeth’s optimism. Elizabeth would by no means be an easy character to follow up, but we’ll just have to wait and see what Irrational does with the game’s DLC.
Here is the official description of BioShock Infinite: "Indebted to the wrong people, with his life on the line, veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all the while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret."
