Naughty Dog has confirmed it currently has “no plans” to develop games for PlayStation Vita.
The news comes in response to PlayStation brand marketing boss Guy Longsworth’s recent chat with GameTailers, where the executive touched on first-party PS Vita development.
"You'll see a number of games coming out from all of our studios," said Longsworth, referring to studios Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games, Sony Santa Monica and MediaMolecule.
However, it seems this isn't the case, at least as far as Naughty Dog is concerned. The Uncharted developer took to NeoGAF to clear things up:
"We're not working on anything for PS Vita," wrote community boss, Arne Meyer. "I won't say never, ever, but there's no plans for it right now - we've always felt that consoles play to our strengths as a studio the best."
"I hate to sound like a treading the line spin-meister here, but I've said that traditionally consoles have played to our strengths - and desires to push the utmost limit of resources and memory our tech and engine. That can change with the right handheld, as why I said I won't ever say 'never' but we hadn't encountered that yet," he added.

I'm not surprised. One of the teams is working on Last Of Us, and I suspect that - if they're not already - the other team will be working on Uncharted 4 or a new project for PS4.
