    Ken Levine Gives Update on ‘BioShock’ Vita; Might Go to Different Developer



    It’s been some time since the initial announcement but Ken Levine has given a brief update on ‘BioShock’ for the Vita, and the forecast doesn’t look too good.


    During Sony’s E3 Press Conference, Irrational Games’ Ken Levine (the man that gave usBioShock) came out with not one but two pretty substantial announcements. The first,PlayStation Move support for BioShock Infinite, has been talked about some and is still believed to be in the pipeline, while the other, a Vita BioShock title, has not been mentioned since.

    Apparently that lack of information regarding BioShock for the Vita is for good reason since, according to Levine, all of their attention has been focused on Infinite. It makes sense thatIrrational wouldn’t want to juggle multiple tasks, and is instead letting that Vita title

    Speaking with Wired about all things BioShock, Levine revealed that Irrational might be interested in outsourcing this BioShock for the Vita to another developer. While he wouldn’t say who could be up for the job, he does admit he is wary of handing over such a precious IP to someone else. Of course that didn’t stop 2K Games from handing over developmental duties to 2K Marin for BioShock 2, and that didn’t turn out so bad.

    Nonetheless I’m sure fans would much rather see a BioShock Vita title from Irrational, even if it is a few years away. The technology contained within Sony‘s new handheld has shown a lot of promise, as indicated by the likes of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, but first personshooters have yet to shine on the console just yet.

    Best case scenario is that after the dust has settled surrounding BioShock Infinite – which should include a couple of Game of the Year nominations – that Irrational Games start discussing this Vita version of their popular franchise. Or we might never hear about thisBioShock
    Vita title again. Either way Irrational wants us to stay focused on Infinite.

    Would you rather that Irrational just scrap this BioShock vita title altogether or pass it off to another developer? How did you envision this title on Sony’s new handheld?
