A BioShock game for the PlayStation Vita was announced at the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo, but it is still not in development. Irrational Games boss Ken Levine explained to IGN that the game has not yet gotten underway because of stalled business arrangements.
"As I said before, that's sort of out of my hands right now. That's with the business guys...negotiating that business deal and trying to make that work for both sides. 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 checks, there's nothing I can do," Levine said.
"At the end of the day, I work for Take-Two and if we were to do a game, they need to be able to fund that development, and they need to make sure they have a deal in place that makes sense for them and makes sense for Sony," he added. "It has to work for [Take-Two] financially, it has to work for Sony financially…and hopefully it will come to fruition."
In December, Levine said the team at Irrational has an idea with a "lot of potential" for BioShock for PS Vita. However, he cautioned gamers not to get too excited about the title, saying it would only be possible if the stars align.
