BioShock Vita Will Probably Never See The Light Of Day
The gaming world is still reeling from the sudden closure of Irrational Games earlier this week, with a few still trying to figure out exactly why Ken Levine chose to do it on the way he did. One the other side, there are still thousands of fans wondering what will now happen to the BioShock franchise, especially when it comes to games that have already been announced
One such title was BioShock Vita, which hadn’t even received a proper name yet. The title was revealed prematurely by Levine himself, who said it would be an all new experience that featured a new BioShock world.

That was all the way back at Sony’s Press Conference at E3 2011, and since then hardly anything has been heard from the project. In fact, after a long period of silence, Levine admitted that production on the game hadn’t even started, although it was still something he wanted to do.
Following the studio’s abrupt closure on Tuesday, Ken Levine had no updates on the project, and basically said that the BioShock franchise was at the mercy of 2K now. It seems unlikely that Levine himself would work on the game if it still is on the table, and considering the problems the Vita has had in terms of sales might convince 2K to scrap the thing altogether.
So don’t hold your breath for a Columbia type experience on a handheld. Just another Vita dream to go up in smoke.
