Bioshock PS Vita Put On Hold


The focus is Bioshock Infinite, at the moment.

“These games really are all-consuming endeavors. You do want to keep the ball rolling but it is tough to give it your full attention before you finish what you have,” Irrational Games boss Ken Levine told Wired.

“But we’re getting there with Infinite. So yeah, we’re not as focused on the Vita game as we will be.”

Levine once again spoke of his displeasure of announcing the PS Vita game when they had nothing to show, but he said because Sony’s been a great partner, they wanted to help the firm with its Vita lineup and so he agreed to make the announcement.

“I don’t like to go out and just talk. I want to show you something first and then talk about it because it is tough to speak abstractly about things. I don’t want to convince you, I’d much rather have the work convince you,” he said.

“When they asked me to do that and at first I was like, ‘Well, I don’t really have a lot to talk about and the last thing I want to do is go out and make a bunch of promises.’ I tried to really downplay what I was presenting.

I tried to manage people’s expectations of what the Vita game is going to be. Not because I think they’re going to be bad but because I’d rather not talk like a marketing person. I’d rather say, ‘Here’s the basic thing we’re doing and maybe you’ll check it out.

When I’m not ready to hype it, I just don’t talk much about it and that’s why when people ask me about the Vita game, I just say I’m not ready to talk about it because I don’t have anything to show yet.”

Meanwhile, Bioshock Infinite is due a release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in October.
