Naughty Dog has 'no plans to work on Vita games'

Community manager sets the record straight following Sony marketing exec's comments

Naughty Dog currently has "no plans" to develop for Vita, according to community manager Arne Meyer.


He was responding to reports based on comments recently made by Guy Longsworth, SVP of PlayStation brand marketing, who was asked by Gametrailers if major first party studios Sony Santa Monica, Guerrilla Naughty Dog and Media Molecule will all support Vita directly at some point.

"You'll see a number of games coming out from all of our studios," was Longsworth's response, but that's not necessarily the case, as Meyer explained in a NeoGAF post.

"We're not working on anything for PS Vita," the Naughty Dog man said. "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."

He later added: "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."
