Hey, you remember The Last Guardian, right? That PlayStation game that was announced a long time ago but no one seemed to care about or has asked about since? Well we have news.
Kidding aside, it came up in conversation this week at Gamescom with Sony boss man, Shuhei Yoshida. Unfortunately, he apologetically said that the game likely won’t be making an appearance at TGS this year because it’s just not quite ready to show.
I cannot confirm any timing because we are waiting for it to be in a state where we are happy that this is the game. We have a certain time frame in our mind, and the team is making great progress, but still not to the point that we can say that, here you go.
Yoshida also stated that the long delay originally stemmed from “the technical issues on PS3” and that “the way it was engineered didn’t work.” He also said that the game has now been “totally re-engineered” and that he’s seen the progress first-hand.
The Last Guardian has been one proverbial roller coaster ride since it was announced, and Sony certainly have their hands full in creating a game that will live up to the expectations after all this time.
