God of War: Ascension not coming to PS Vita

Sony has poured cold water on any hopes of seeing God of War: Ascension on PlayStation Vita.

Speaking in a Q&A with fans on Twitter this week, developer Sony Santa Monica replied to a user question as to whether or not we’d see cross-play for Ascension for PS3 and PS Vita.

“We are not creating God of War: Ascension for Vita,” the firm said.

Of course, this doesn’t rule out the possibility of Kratos making his way onto Sony’s new handheld at some point; just don’t expect to be playing Ascension on the device.

Squeezing info out of the studio proved difficult to say the least, with Santa Monica keeping mum on the subject of a multiplayer beta for Kratos’ latest bloodbath.

“Cannot engage this question currently,” the company replied.

God of War: Ascension is scheduled to ship exclusively for PS3 in March 2013.
