Franchise creator Ken Levine has spoken out about the Bioshock Vita game for the first time. In a series of tweets, the co-founder of Irrational Games said that ”I was thinking a Final Fantasy Tactics-style thing set in pre-fall Rapture. Something that would work well on the Vita and not be a compromise in any way. Also, as some know, I’m a turn-based whore.”
It was Levine himself who announced the game when he took the stage at Sony’s 2011 E3 conference. Unfortunately, Bioshock Vita never entered full development. ”2K and Sony couldn’t put a deal together when I last checked,” said Levine, ”they seemed way more optimistic about this back in 2011.”
Ken Levine’s last game was 2013’s Bioshock Infinite. He is currently working on an unknown digital project with the small team left at Irrational Games.
