BioShock creator Ken Levine has indicated that the planned PlayStation Vita entry in the cerebral first-person shooter series is unlikely to materialize.
Levine took to Twitter to discuss the project’s status, as well as divulging what he had in mind for BioShock’s handheld debut.
on the Vita game: 2k and sony couldn't put a deal together when I last checked. They seemed way more optimistic about this back in 2011.— Ken Levine (@IGLevine) July 8, 2014
Wish I could do it myself, but lawyers and all that. I still love my vita.— Ken Levine (@IGLevine) July 8, 2014
BioShock PS Vita was first announced at Sony’s E3 2011 press conference, where Levine took to the stage to heap praise on Sony’s then-newly announced handheld, as well as confirming PlayStation Move support for Infinite.
The last time we heard anything on BioShock PS Vita was last summer, when Levine said he was still pushing for the game. He later shuttered developer Irrational Games in early 2014, with the rights to the franchise subsequently landing in publisher 2K's lap.
