BioShock creative director Ken Levine has opened up on the once planned PS Vita entry in the series, which never began development.
“On the Vita game: 2K and Sony couldn’t put a deal together when I last checked,” Levine said. “They seemed way more optimistic about this back in 2011.”
He added, “Wish I could do it myself, but lawyers and all that. I still love my Vita.”
As for what he wanted to make, Levine said, “I was thinking a Final Fantasy Tactics style thing set in pre-fall Rapture.”
He continued, “Something that would work well on the Vita and not be a compromise in any way. Also, as some know, I’m a turn based whore.”
While BioShock may never come to PS Vita in its own exclusive form, there’s always the possibility of playing a BioShock Infinite PlayStation 4 remaster via PS Vita remote play. At least, that’s what Levine is hoping. But of course, it’s “not [his] decision.”
