Analysts had put the development and marketing budgets at $100 million a piece.
Reports of the combined development and marketing budget for BioShock: Infinite being a monstrous $200 million appear to be way off the mark, according to a Tweet from the game's creator Ken Levine.
"200 million for Infinite? Did someone send some checks to the wrong address?" Tweeted Levine.
The Tweet followed a The New York Times article in which it was reported that a team of 200 has been working on Infinite for more than four years, with an estimated costs of "upward of $100 million".
In addition, the report says that analysts have estimated a marketing budget for the game to be $100 million.
