Naughty Dog has no plans to make PS Vita games
“We’ve always felt that consoles play to our strengths as a studio the best.”
Naughty Dog won’t be onboard developing games for Sony’s new handheld the PlayStation Vita. That is according to a statement made by community boss Arne Meyer.
Meyer cleared up a recent report from a GameTrailers interview with PlayStation brand marketing VP Guy Logsworth – the latter suggested that all studios at Sony’s Worldwide Studios family were involved in developing games for the handheld. However, that is not the case according to the Uncharted developer whose community boss issued the following statement on the NeoGaf boards.
“We’re not working on anything for PS Vita,” wrote Meyer.
Meyer, however, didn’t rule out the possibility of developing PS Vita games in the future, while stressing that in the meantime they have “no plans” to do so.
“I won’t say never, ever, but there’s no plans for it right now – we’ve always felt that consoles play to our strengths as a studio the best.”
“I hate to sound like a treading the line spin-meister here, but I’ve said that traditionally consoles have played to our strengths – and desires to push the utmost limit of resources and memory our tech and engine. That can change with the right handheld, as why I said I won’t ever say ‘never’ but we hadn’t encountered that yet,” he added.
