Despite committing a number of its titles to the PlayStation Vita, Italian outfit Milestone has decided not to release its upcoming arcade racing spin-off WRC Powerslide on the handheld. Chatting to us overnight, the company revealed that the title will be coming to consoles only when it releases in early 2013.

“We are working on a new project that will be available for the handheld,” Milestone's Daniele Caso told us. “But WRC Powerslide won’t be launching on the Vita.”

It’s unfortunate news, because the downloadable rally game looks like a perfect fit for Sony’s struggling system. Boasting an isometric viewpoint and an accessible arcade handling model, we suspect that the title would have suited the mobile format well. Oh well, at least there’s always MotorStorm RC, huh?
