It seemed almost too good to be true when The Last Guardian appeared during Sony’s presser at E3 2016 with an actual release date. The game had been missing in action for years ever since its first captivating teaser, but October 25th was the date players would finally be able to get their hands on it. Well things have changed and The Last Guardian has been delayed, with it now releasing on December 6th in North America, December 7th in Europe, and December 9th in the UK and Ireland.
In a statement on the PlayStation blog Shuhei Yoshida wrote:
A delay is a difficult decision, particularly with this game, but we have encountered more bugs than anticipated while in the final stages of development. To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game’s creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues.
So if you’ve been waiting for The Last Guardian you’re going to have to be patient for just a bit longer.
