Levine: Irrational Currently Focused On BioShock Infinite, “Not As Focused” On BioShock Vita As They Will Be

April 26, 2012 Written by Nick Michetti

Ken Levine has given an update on the status of BioShock Vita.

In an interview with Wired, Ken Levine first said the following about BioShock Vita, which echo earlier comments he had made about showing the game:

I always say, look, don’t believe the hype. Listen to you guys, or listen to your buddies or go on the internet when a game comes out. But you shouldn’t be complaining about developers hyping their work, because you should just not listen to them. That’s their job, is to hype it.

I’m fortunate that I get to hype things I really believe in, I don’t have to go out and hype stuff I don’t believe in. And 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.

When asked whether or not Irrational was working on BioShock Infinite and BioShock Vita simultaneously, he said:

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. But we’re getting there with Infinite.

[...]

So yeah, we’re not as focused on the Vita game as we will be.
