Burning Skies studio entrusted with creating the new series entry for Sony's handheld

US developer Nihilistic Software has been handed the reigns for Call of Duty: Declassified for PS Vita.

Nihilistic has previously worked on Sony titles such as PlayStation Move Heroes and Resistance Burning Skies, which received 53 and 59 average review scores on Metacritic.

Declassified will be the first appearance for the immensely popular series on Sony's handheld PS Vita. The series has broken numerous sales records since the launch of Modern Warfare in 2007.

The game will take advantage of Vita’s touch-screen capabilities and PlayStation Near technology, enabling users to share content such as loadouts with their friends.

Call of Duty: Black Ops - Declassified will also offer eight player support over Wi-Fi, although it will not be accessible through 3G.

The latest entry into the blockbuster franchise is currently slated to be released in November.
