Irrational’s Ken Levine has shed more light on the potential release of a Bioshock game on the PlayStation Vita.
During a Bioshock Infinite preview event held in Los Angeles this week, Levine let loose that whilst Bioshock on the Vita could happen and that he’s more than up for it, it’s out of the creative directors hands.
“That is in the hands of business people right now” said Levine, “It’s something I’m still interested in, and people ask me that all the time. Right now I’m just sort of waiting to see what the business people come up with, and that’s sort of out of my hands at this point. That’s something that I think has a lot of potential. The game idea we have has a lot of potential. It’s just a question of [if] their stars all align.”
Levine also said that the game may or may not take place in Rapture, the setting of Bioshock and it’s sequel or Columbia, the setting for the franchises latest release, Bioshock Infinite. “I never actually said where it was going to be set. Just that it would be in the Bioshock Universe”.
Bioshock Vitas existence as a game is still in the proposal stages however. Levine has said that whilst it would be an all new game if it were to happen, it’s still his “pet project”.
