Irrational Games the developers behind the game BioShock Infinite and 2K Games the company who have produced all the BioShock games have given some hints about the possibility of BioShock being on the Vita. The BioShock series is a collection of three first-person shooter. The first two of which take place in the underwater city of Rapture and the new one BioShock Infinite which takes place in the city high up in the sky named Columbia. BioShock on the Vita would be a huge game for the system. Ken Levine who is BioShock Infinite's creative director said some things today about the possibility of BioShock coming to the Vita.
Today Irrational Games revealed its stance on BioShock for the Vita. They talked about their stance on it for the Vita at their BioShock Infinite preview event that happened this week in Los Angeles. The hint of BioShock for the Vita was first brought up at E3 2011 when Ken Levine himself brought out a Vita in his hands at Sony's press conference and referring to it as his so called "pet project." Since then fans have been if it was ever going to happen. So this week the following things were said.
The following things were said:
“That is in the hands of business people right now,” Levine told IGN. “It’s something I’m still interested in, and people ask me that all the time. Right now I’m just sort of waiting to see what the business people come up with, and that’s sort of out of my hands at this point. That’s something that I think has a lot of potential. The game idea we have has a lot of potential. It’s just a question of [if] their stars all align.”
Ken Levine also gave his stance on whether the Vita version would take place in Rapture or Columbia, and here is what he said:
“I actually never said where it was going to be set. I just said it would be in the BioShock franchise.”
Back then Ken Levine said some of the following things:
“it's a different project. It's its own thing being built from the ground up” and “a core game.”
He said that back then when he confirmed that BioShock Vita would be an all new game.
The last thing he said was back in October 2011 when he was referring to the project, and here is what it was:
“in the paper design stage” and noting that the Vita iteration is “a different goal. And it has to sort of have its own voice in the franchise.”
That is all the stuff that was said in the past and this week about BioShock being on the Vita.
