GameStop Scares Last Guardian Fans, Sony Gives Relief
This is one of those times when a clarification was absolutely necessary to stop widespread gamer freak-outs.
After we learned that Team ICO boss Fumito Ueda had left Sony, many were concerned about the fate of his current project, The Last Guardian. It became known that Ueda would complete the game while on a contractual freelance basis with Sony but skeptics remained...
And those skeptics - along with a bunch of dedicated fans - got a big scare when retailer GameStop called up those who had the game pre-ordered and said, "Sorry, the game has been canceled." The bad news started in the NeoGAF forums and spread. But thankfully, a Sony representative was quick to defuse the situation:
"It's not true. The game is still in development. It hasn't been canceled."
'whew' That was scary. ...we just want to know what gave GameStop the idea that The Last Guardian was canceled. That's still a tad concerning, after all; these things don't just happen...do they?
