The Last Guardian isn’t dead, Shuhei Yoshida has been saying in interviews today.
Speaking from Gamescom, after Sony’s stellar press conference, the head of Sony Worldwide Studios has attempted to allay fears that the game is still going, and is still aiming for PS3.
“The team is still working on it very hard,” he said to EG. “There are certain technical issues they’ve been working on. That’s the period of time when the game, looking from the outside, doesn’t seem to be making much progress.”
“But internally there is a lot of work going into creating the title.”
The Last Guardian hasn’t been seen for ages, and the title has been beset with bad news for some time, with lead Fumito Ueda now only working on the game as a contractor.
“We had the game playable,” Yoshida added. “At one point we felt that it would be produced for a certain time period. That was the time we prematurely talked about the launch window. But it turned out the technical issues are much harder to solve.”
“So the engineering team had to go back and re-do some of the work they had done.”
Yoshida reiterated that the game would see the light of day on PS3.
