No, the long-delayed Team Ico project The Last Guardian hasn’t been cancelled. It’s just a long time coming, that’s all.
Even though he’s no longer working for Sony, the game’s designer, Fumito Ueda, expressed to the tiresome fans that the game is still in the works, despite claims pointing otherwise. “While it’s been a long time coming, The Last Guardian remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team,” said Ueda. “I should also mention that details regarding The Last Guardian’s release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.”
So the team is still toiling away…and we can’t help but wonder if development will now shift over to Sony’s next console, as the PlayStation 4 is all set to be officially unveiled next week at a press event in New York City. We’ll know more by then, but, for now, keep those fingers crossed that Last Guardian arrives sooner rather than later.
