No progress on BioShock Vita

A BioShock game for Vita could still be made, but owners of Sony's handheld probably shouldn't hold their breath for fresh news any time soon.

Ken Levine announced the game for Sony’s portable at E3 2011, back when the system was still known as NGP, but the Irrational Games boss said this week the project remains in limbo.

"That's out of my hands right now, that's with the business guys [at Take-Two and Sony] negotiating that deal and trying to make it work for both sides,” he told IGN. "I've got my fingers crossed that that's going to happen because it's something I want to do, but until somebody starts signing the cheques there's nothing I can do... Hopefully it will come to fruition."

Levine has previously suggested that Irrational could outsource development of BioShock Vita.

The studio is currently working on BioShock Infinite DLC, with the game having gone gold earlier this month ahead of the BioShock Infinite release date of March 26.

    Pro-tip: Make a unique handheld game, not a crappy Port like everybody else or crap in general, dont make it what its not

    I mean, alright. I doubt anyone with a Vita was like, "Man, I've never played it and don't have a console/PC and the $5-$10 required to buy the game." Buuuuuut, it would be awesome to see such high quality games on a portable device, especially one of such horsepower as the Vita.

    I think it was supposed to be a completely new game and not just a port of 1. I was kind of looking forward to this, but I doubt it will ever happen.

    In that case, I hope it never does. If there's one thing I hate about certain franchises, it's when they split up the games to different systems and neglect others. I hate it even when I own the system. (I'm looking at you, Kingdom Hearts.)
