Sony has confirmed the handheld console's online store will close on August 27, and with the 'Twin Breaker' developer's upcoming title at least six months from release, there won't be time for the launch.

The studio wrote on Twitter: "With today's news of the Vita Store closing, we sadly have had to cancel the Vita version of our next game.

"The store will be closed before our next game is ready, so it seems Habroxia 2 will be our final Vita release."

Meanwhile, Spooky Squid Games is now rushing to complete work on its upcoming Vita port of 'Russian Subway Dogs'.

Miguel Sternberg told The Gamer: "Basically, it's a whole new headache on top of the already complex process of releasing on consoles as a small dev.

"The port really has been a labour of love. We're way past the point where it makes a ton of financial sense to release on Vita, but it's one of my all time favourite consoles and I wanted to release a game on it before everything shut down.

"Most of the 'price' of deciding to do a Vita port has already been paid.

"This is my first time going through this process of coding for consoles - my game dev background is art, not code - so there's no guarantee I'll hit the deadline. It's a lot of stress."
