Levine – BioShock Vita is “its own thing”

Irrational Games’ surprise announcement of a BioShock game for the PSVita will be an entirely new title, studio boss Ken Levine has revealed.

Speaking to IGN, Levine stated: “It’s a different project. It’s its own thing being built from the ground up that is going to be strange and surprising to people. I think we always want to surprise people. If I’m just saying ‘here’s BioShock 1 on Vita’, that’s something we could potentially do, but you don’t need us to do that. Somebody can make that happen.”

No details have been given about if BioShock Vita fits in with Rapture or the BioShock Infinite setting. Maybe it’s an entirely new world. Maybe it’s a minigame collection. Hopefully not, though.
