BioShock Vita, which never happened and probably never will, was supposed to be a Final Fantasy Tactics type of thing. Ken Levine says this is because he's a "turn-based whore."

 

 

Unfortunately, Sony and 2K were at loggerheads and it was simply canned.

 

 

"2K and Sony couldn't put a deal together when I last checked. They seemed way more optimistic about this back in 2011," Ken Levine said on Twitter. "Wish I could do it myself, but lawyers and all that. I still love my Vita."

 

 

Someone asked what it would have looked like and Levine responded, "I was thinking a Final Fantasy Tactics style thing set in pre-fall Rapture."

 

 

He also added, "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."

 

 

As you may know, Levine owns the rights to the superhero game Freedom Force. He'd like to go turn-based with that too.

 

 

"Thought about that as I own Freedom Force personally," Levine added.
