The Last Guardian Is "On Hiatus"

Tretton suggests the game won't be available at any point soon.

Speaking on GameTrailers, Sony’s Jack Tretton has indicated that we won’t be seeing Team Ico’s The Last Guardian any time soon.

“I think the cool thing about our worldwide development studios is we have so many projects out there from so many great teams,” he said, speaking about the much anticipated and much delayed adventure.

“Projects never ultimately go away, so The Last Guardian has certainly not gone away, but it’s on hiatus right now.”

The Last Guardian was first revealed back in 2009, originally intended for the PlayStation 3. Rumours recently suggested the game had moved to PlayStation 4 but where it is now is anyone’s guess.

The studio haven’t released a game since PS2 cult hit Shadow Of The Colossus.

      It seems like they must have spent far too much on so far to cancel it when they could complete it even in a poor state and get some sales in off the back of the name alone.

        If it’s “On Hiatus” it aint comin to PS3. That means they would have to make PS4. Thats a lot of work. It’s dead, the bloke who created it has left.

      A clarification from Yoshida Shuhei ..
      “That hiatus term—I’m not a native English-speaking person—but that’s misleading,” . “The game is in active development. [Lead designer Fumito] Ueda-san shared updates a few months ago. Nothing has changed. My answer is, ‘Yes, the game is in active development.’ It’s not hiatus at all. But we are not ready to reintroduce it. When we are ready, we will do that. Please wait.”

      So there! ;-)

    I like how Jack also gave Geoff the same answers he’s given him for the past 4 years in response to where Agent is – “Ask Rockstar”.

    God only knows where that game’s gone.

    It never even looked like a good game so I’m glad it didn’t come out. Bad for my TSA E3 Bingo though :p

    TLG has gone down the same route as The Getaway 3 they say it’s still in development but they have taken a ‘backseat’ with it when really it’s been cancelled

    I’ve lost count of how long I’ve actually been waiting for this. I’ll keep waiting though.

      I was thinking the same! Not sure what the bingo criteria were. Wasn’t there news before E3 saying there would be a TLG announcement? If this is it then I’m very disappointed.

    TLG has taken too long, it can only disappoint and after so long since their last game the anticipation is huge. What they need to do is make and release another game and then release a finished TLG a year or so later.

    Should have ditched Team Ico instead of Liverpool Studio…
    Just hand the code over to Thatgamecompany and be done with it.
