According to the official Japanese PlayStation website, PS Vita production in Japan will be coming soon to an end.
The pages for the Black PS Vita (model PCH-2000 ZA11) and the Aqua Blue PS Vita (model PCH-2000) mention that “shipments are scheduled to end soon.” These two models are the last remaining PS Vita SKUs currently in production in Japan.
While the exact end date is yet unknown, if it follows the patterns of the PlayStation 3 production end, where the console received a similar notice two months in advance, this could mean that the PS Vita will be discontinued by April 2019.
Back in September 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed that PS Vita production in Japan will end in 2019 with no current plans for a new handheld console.
