The Banner Saga for PlayStation Vita Cancelled

Put “on the back burner” by developer Stoic in December 2015 due to cost and time, then brought back a week later after Sony partnered with them, the PlayStation Vita version of The Banner Saga has been officially cancelled. Writing on their website, publisher Versus Evil explained that “unfortunately, after much work and resources, we’ve decided to cancel the project and will not be bringing the Banner Saga franchise to PS Vita.” It was in development for over two years and Sony took the lead on the project, handing it off to Code Mystics, who worked on it for more than a year. “It should be stressed that the effort, time and cost had far exceeded what was budgeted by all involved,” Versus Evil added.

Specifically, the unique nature of the engine work needed to get the game running on Vita required the game being playable on Vita, making READ FULL…
