Just recently Sony announced that a Vita version of Borderlands 2 will be hitting the handheld. This was surprising as Randy Pitchford, (head at Gearbox Software), admitted that while his team would love to port their game to the Vita they simply can’t do it on their own. That was over a year ago and now it seems what once was a dream was made into reality.
Sony is self-publishing the Vita version of Borderlands 2, with Iron Galaxy, the creative minds behind the indie hit Divekick, as the studio behind the development. This was all due to Sony’s effort to bring the popular fps shooter onto their handheld. And now it seems they are willing to pull off something like this again. As recently revealed on Playstation.Blog, Sony is launching their Third Party Production Team to bring more games on their platforms.
Gio Corsi, Sony’s Director of Third Party Production, had this to say: “The Third Party Relations team at PlayStation is well-known for developing solid relationships across this industry, and this new group will work closely with our publishing partners to bring their beloved IPs to new places… We already have a project underway, the recently announced PS Vita version of Borderlands 2. I will share more with you as our adventures continue and new games are made available,” he writes. “In the meantime, let me know in the (PS Blog) comments what you want to see on PlayStation (PS3, PS4, PS Vita). Or contact me on Twitter through the ingenious and mesmerizing handle of @giocorsi…
You can ask away on their blog page. You never know, we might see some surprises.
