Team Ico delays

Posted By | On 20th, Apr. 2011

Team Ico boss Fumito Ueda has announced that The Last Guardian has been delayed.

If that wasn’t bad enough the much anticipated HD re-release of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus has also been knocked back.

The developer did, at least, post an apology on the EU PlayStation blog, saying that the delay will mean a better quality product. Good on him.

    “I announced at last year’s Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011.

    However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.

    All the members of my production team are working together at a fast pace to develop and release the game in First Party Studio quality.

    I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for “The Last Guardian” for so long, but I beg for your patience. I will also announce the new release timing at a later time.”

Well, if it makes for a better game; but I’m still a little gutted.

Thanks to CVG for the info.
