Whilst it’s clear that development on Team Ico’s The Last Guardian has hardly been smooth, and numerous PR slip-ups over the years (including the very recent quote that the game was “on hiatus”) have dampened the excitement somewhat, it’s good to hear that the game is still alive.
So, Jack Tretton citation aside, where has this latest confirmation come from? Jim Ryan, or rather, a PR handler of his. During a very readable interview with The Metro, Ryan says that whilst there was “no news this E3” the company “might have more news on that” at some point in the future.
“It does still exist though? It hasn’t been cancelled?” asks the interviewer, to which the PR rep chips in with a solid “It does exist.”
So, the big questions remain: when is The Last Guardian going to get another airing? And on which platform: PS3, PS4 or PS Vita? Team Ico’s output has been nil all this current generation, and it’s not hard to assume that the game has now moved to next-gen. Let’s hope it lives up to the hype.
