Irrational Games overlord Ken Levine has said that BioShock on PlayStation Vita is out of his hands until a firm deal between Take-Two and Sony has been cemented.
The handheld entry in the popular first-person shooter series was announced at E3 2011, but nothing on the game has been heard since.
And from the sound of things, it’ll be a while before we get our paws on the title, too.
“That’s out of my hands right now,” Levine told IGN.
“I’ve got my fingers crossed that that’s going to happen because it’s something I want to do but until somebody starts signing the cheques, there’s nothing I can do.”
He added: "I work for a company, for Take-Two. If they want us to do a game they need a deal in place that works for them and that makes sense for Sony.
"I've got people to pay," continued Levine. "'Hey guys, do you want to work on this and not feed your family?'"

Well, he isn't wrong, plus sony should know that an IP like bioshock will help sell the PSVita, the more games the better for vita.

Sony should focus on putting out tons of quality games for the Vita. It's the only thing that can save the system. Also a marketing campaign might help. Pretty much no one even knows the system exists. Far more people are aware of the PSP's existance than the Vita. The system itself is wonderful and adds a whole different dimension to gaming. It just has no buzz. Sony needs to generate a buzz with mind blowing games.

There's nothing to say they're NOT working on a deal right now, it's just from his position they havent made that deal yet so he's not asking people to work on something they don't have the money ear marked for.
