God Of War Devs Enlisted To Help With The Last Guardian
Those following the development saga of The Last Guardian are probably a little - or a lot - concerned.
First, Team ICO boss Fumito Ueda leaves Sony as an employee and continues to work on the project on a contractual basis and second, Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that progress is slow.
And now, in another update, we learn that God of War developer Sony Santa Monica has been enlisted to help out on the project. In speaking to Wired, Yoshida said the Santa Monica team and other members of the Sony family are trying to assist the core design team of The Last Guardian. Said Yoshida:
"It's not just Santa Monica. We have great tech people in Worldwide Studios. We have a central tech group in the US and the UK so we are giving them whatever help they need. Technically, we have the best engineers in the US and Europe, so these teams are helping them, giving advice."
Thus far, besides an extended teaser trailer and some vague details, we know very little about The Last Guardian. So at this point, with the team accepting help, one might assume the end result might not be one of those ingenious cohesive Ueda visions. But the optimist in you should be glad that Sony is willing to do whatever is necessary to make this game happen.
