After production stopped in the West in early 2018, PlayStation Vita officially retired in March of this year, when Sony stopped assembling new handheld consoles in Japan. Soon, apparently, a break could also be placed on the release of new games on the store.
The indiscretion was launched by the Project Sense development team – 的 的 预感: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story, a Kickstarter-funded title on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation Vita at the beginning of 2020. In the latest update provided to the backers, Benjamin W. Widdowson stated that, based on the information available on the dashboard that Sony reserves for developers and publishers, Project Sense “could be the last game ever to be released on PlayStation Vita”.
The stop to the production of games in physical format was scheduled for March 31, 2019, but then Sony decided to extend the deadline. Judging by the affirmation of the independent software house, the Japanese company would, therefore, be willing to put a definitive brake on the publication of PlayStation Vita games – even on the digital store – early next year. Sony has not yet expressed in this regard, therefore the information cannot be considered official.
According to a developer, Sony Interactive Entertainment plans to cut off the ability to add new PlayStation Vita titles to the PlayStation Store in early 2020. https://t.co/H4dYRG45rj pic.twitter.com/qmeXrDW8fS
