Yesterday we pointed you to a GameTrailers TV interview with PlayStation marketing SVP Guy Longworth, and the biggest thing to come out of his mouth was confirmation of a Call of Duty title for Vita. He also said that Sony's first party groups would also be working on Vita games, even going as far as to say that "Naughty Dog will be working on something."

But they're not.

Naughty Dog community manager Arne Meyer shut that down in a NeoGAF post.

"We're not working on anything for PS Vita," Meyer said. "I won't say never, ever, but there's no plans for it right now - we've always felt that consoles play to our strengths as a studio the best."

Arne later stressed that Naughty Dog has never made a handheld game, so this clarification shouldn't be much of a surprise.

From a later NeoGAF post: " I hate to sound like a treading the line spin-meister here, but I've said that traditionally consoles have played to our strengths - and desires to push the utmost limit of resources and memory our tech and engine. That can change with the right handheld, as why I said I won't ever say "never" but we hadn't encountered that yet."

So, not "never," but still probably not.
