The initial announcement for the PS Vita port came back in January 2017. Sadly though, like the early support from first-party developers and Sony, sales for the PS Vita declined in the second week by as much as 78% in Japan, while United States monthly sales fell to between 30,000 and 50,000. At the same time, the company informed that it will accept product code requests for the manufacture of cards until June 28 of this year and the final purchase orders will have an entry deadline of February 15, 2019.

The system originally launched back in 2012, where it received a mixed reception from fans. However, support waned after a few years and a number of games were just downright poor such as the Vita Call of Duty, and everyone's still waiting for Vita Bioshock. Sony's baffling decision to only support its expensive proprietary memory cards made the system pricier than it needed to be, and big studios quickly dropped support. However, this does not mean the outright death of the portable console, as digital distribution will continue for new PlayStation Vita games. While that's already an impressive number of platforms, the developer today confirmed that the game will be launching on none other than the lonely PlayStation Vita next week.
