The Last Guardian

Rumours were rife that Team ICO’s The Last Guardian had been cancelled prior to Sony’s E3 media briefing. Nonetheless, while Sony clarified these claims, we still saw no sign of the game at the expo. President of worldwide studios for SCE Shuhei Yoshida spoke to Eurogamer about the situation for the past couple of days and why The Last Guardian missed E3 again.

“There were a difficult couple of days before the show – I’m sure you noticed. I’m so happy it was retracted before the show happened.” He then said that development was still on for the game.

“Lots of people tweeted me they were heartbroken by that news [prior to the show]. People are going through this roller coaster of emotions, and it’s our fault for not releasing the game, yet.

“We owe a lot to those people, but we really don’t want to release piecemeal information until we can say this is The Last Guardian – so we ask you to wait.”

In other words? Keep waiting, PlayStation fans.

    Sony aren’t a company to hang onto a game, or lie about it’s existence if the project simply isn’t working.
    We know that Sony Santa Monica canceled a project they’d been working on for 3 years because it wasn’t working & the game couldn’t come together, the same would have happened with The Last Guardian if that was the case.

    IMO the PS3 wasn’t cutting it for what Team ICO wanted to do, so they’ve waited for PS4, final dev kits & tools to really making the game shine.
    I suspect we’ll see something of The Last Guardian at TGS, it makes more sense unveil that game at a Japanese event, with Team ICO being Japanese developers.
