Bioshock on Vita Still Alive, Ken Levine in Talks With Sony and 2K

Ken Levine, the creator and director behind the Bioshock series, has revealed that the Bioshock project on Vita is still alive – he is still in talks with Sony and 2K apparently:

Levine did talk about how the Vita title would be with IGN way back in 2011 when he first teased it:

“That’s a new game. That is going to be strange and surprising to people, in the same way. I think when we launched Infinite, people said, ‘Wait, what, what are you doing?’ I think we always want to surprise people. If I’m just saying, ‘Here’s BioShock 1 on Vita’… Let’s say we potentially do, you don’t need us to do that, somebody could make that happen if they wanted that to happen.”

“For us, it’s like, ‘Hey, here’s this weird experiment you want to do.’ Experiments always carry risks, though. That’s been the experience of working on BioShock Infinite. And working on BioShock. People saying, ‘This is weird, risky, I don’t understand.’ I’m fortunate that I get to do things that are risky, my team gets to do things that are risky.”

So, there you have it. Ken clearly wants to make an original Bioshock experience on Vita, and he’s still pushing for it with the upper management at Sony and 2K.
