2K Games Has "no update" On BioShock PS Vita


The closure of Irrational Games could most likely be the end of BioShock PS Vita……..

BioShock PS Vita was announced at E3 almost a whopping 3 years ago and since then no solid details have been revealed, a while back Ken Levine (BioShock creator) did say he was working with Sony to begin progress on BioShock PS Vita. However since then we have not received any news.

But the closure of Irrational Games the studio responsible for the BioShock series has seemed to have extinguished the fire that was BioShock PS Vita.

A 2K Games rep told CVG that they have "no update" on the progress of BioShock PS Vita.

The comment above and the closure of Irrational does not mean the demise of BioShock PS Vita, Ken Levine revealed in 2011 that if they find a studio good enough they will most likely outsource BioShock PS Vita.

Let us know if you think BioShock PS Vita will ever happen in the comments below!

Unfortunately, this is 100% vaporware.

Man, Bioshock is one of the best franchise I played (though I didn't enjoy Infinite as much as the first one), I hope 2K will make games worthy of past Bioshock's. Though I have very little hope for it to ever appear on the Vita, it would be a good move from 2K to port the game while thinking what to do for the series.

Thank you for teasing us for three years :(

I actually didn't think it was going to happen anyway. Oh well 2014 is still shaping out to be a good year plenty of indie and niche Japanese games to look foward to. Last week I picked up Dangan Ronpa and Toukiden and in the next couple of months were getting more games, always got to look on the upside.

There's a guy on twitter called @EditorGed bug testing Borderlands 2 on Vita!!! he recently put up footage of him playing it and screenshots! unfortunately he deleted the video and images for reasons he didn't disclose (obviously was told too?)
Anyway some people seen it but no one grabbed the video ffs! gotta say after watching it, the devs have got it spot on, the guy also commented on it saying the framerate was butter most of the time, but drops slightly similar to the consoles only in hectic battles.

Winterminute said...

did you atleast save the images? could you share them to us? ive been aching to see the screenshots since it was announced

Winterminute said...

nvm i got them :D

krysodlak said...

Where? Please, tell me, I really need to see them, can't find 'em on google search

HannyS said...

Not sure if u did realized but Ken Levine Irrational Games is closed! so there will be no more bioshock anymore ever again most likely

matt said...

Well at least we have Borderlands 2 plus DLC

Josip said...

Honestly, i really wasnt looking forward to the ps vita version of Bioshock...I really would rather see Persona 5 or maybe a Silent Hill or even another awesome Uncharted game. Hope his new smaller team is going to really work on story development because I would love to see what they produce.

I'm always hoping to see more AAA games for the Vita whenever they should arrive, even if they are really just ports of the console versions. I didn't see where this game was canceled or anything, just no update as to when we might see it, or at least get a release date. But again, not seeing it having been cancelled means that it is likely still coming, just probably not anytime soon. Well, if taking a bit longer ensures a better all around game, then it's worth the wait. I mean, would you rather have it next week and be full of glitches, or around holiday and run smoothly? Yeah, I'll take the latter thank you.

I always thought the reason Borderlands 2 was coming to the Vita, was to test the water and see how well it sells and then 2k would decide to invest in a Bioshock Vita or not. But now Ken Levine has pretty much given up on Bioshock, I don't think we'll ever see it. Ken was pretty much the only one pushing the game and now he's stopped with Bioshock I don't think 2K will bother.

how is danganrompa?

nonscpo said...

If your into the Visual novel genre then its a must buy, every describtion so far from reviewers is correct; imagine if ace attorney and virtues last reward had a baby grew up and when to school thats basically Dangan Ronpa. If youve never played a visual novel before then its also worth picking up (Just to try something new), just be aware there is alot of reading involved.
P.S. Dangan Ronpa 2 has already been anounced for release later this year :)

S.m. Ebrahim said...

Scale of 1-10 how similar is it to persona 4???

tkempin said...

Ruin looked so epic. I would have played the shit out of that game. I have no idea how it could have been justifiably cancelled.

nonscpo said...

To be honest Ive never played the Persona series, the only thing I can point to you are journalist review of the game. For what its worth critics state that the Persona element of dating and friendships is the part that carries on over, and like I said above Its a "Visual Novel" game not a "JRPG" so if youve never played a VN before then this is the game Id recommend to try first.
P.S. Just so you know this game was published by NIS America and like Atlus Aksys Xseed which means that they market to a small niche audience (probably 100.000) so if you want a physical copy id pick one up soon before they run out.
