Vicarious Visions Was Working on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for Vita

Natural disaster

A portable version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was in development at Vicarious Visions, a report has revealed. According to Kotaku, publisher Activision had planned to release a scaled down version of Treyarch’s latest console shooter on the PlayStation Vita, before the “flawed” project was eventually canned and passed off to Resistance: Burning Skies developer Nihilistic Software.

Apparently, the put-upon studio was given just five months to build Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, which would explain the spin-off shooter's severe lack of content. We can’t help but feel that the project should have been scrapped altogether, and saved until next year.

Fortunately, Nihilistic won’t be forced to work under such unfair conditions again – the developer has now bowed out from console development, and decided to focus on the emerging mobile market instead.

@Sanquine Yeah, I think that's the problem. It honestly seems like Declassified would be a decent game at different price point. £40 is just far too much, though.

@get2sammyb Yeah sammy, the point is at first you are impressed because it is a FPS on the go, but then you turn your ps3 on and you see how blend it is:S

Nihlistic's games werent terrible, just very shallow and bare-boned. It's not shocking given how little development time they were given, but I still was never really impressed with any of their games.
