We announced a few days ago that Escape Hatch Entertainment would be bringing their new game, Starlight Tactics, to the Vita in 2015. It now appears as though there’s an issue with that announcement.
The game is being developed in Unity across a number of consoles including the PS4, XBOX One, and mobile devices. They are also planning to bring the game to the Vita as well, but there’s a catch. The PS Vita does not currently support the version of Unity that the game is being written in.
The developers are making Starlight Tactics with version 4.6 of Unity while the Vita only supports version 4.3. The plan is to port the game to the Vita once it can support either the 4.6 or 5.0 engine. Until then however, the game will not be coming to Sony’s handheld.
Escape Hatch Entertainment is in discussions with the people at Unity to see how this problem can be resolved.
