The Last Guardian Update: "Technical Issues Being Addressed"

Unfortunately, it wasn't at E3. Prior to that, rumors swirled concerning the status of The Last Guardian, one of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusives of the generation.

But the wait is growing long and concerns continue to linger. Some have said the game might not even be in development, or maybe it has been temporarily shelved. Well, a Game Informer interview with Sony Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida has revealed a small update. ...it might be more upsetting than encouraging, depending on your point of view.

"There are some technical issues being addressed. There’s not much to show what it looks like. At this period of time we are unable to give an update, but the game is still in development."

We've heard that designer Fumito Ueda left Sony to work on a contractual basis on Guardian, and we've also heard that Ueda can be a tough guy to work for. Just about every piece of information we have concerning this project is a little unsettling, but at least it's "still in development." At this rate, though, maybe it should be a PS4 launch title.

Something definitely is up with LG considering there has been one trailer and nothing about gameplay. I would prefer to hear from Ueda or others working on it. Ever since it was announced Ueda left Sony I keep wondering if his heart is in it.

I have the feeling they were to ambitious with the game and allowed too much freedom in the development. The combination of the two resulted in the game never coming together and now Sony has brought in outside help to hopefully salvage what is there.

I imagine that, based on what few updates we've had, it never had a clear direction for the gameplay and all efforts toward a focus have failed at awesomeness. I expect a cancellation.

If I could just stop playing VF5 FS for a freaking night I'd play some more Ico. Anyhow I like the mythical and lost feeling worlds of Ueda's stuff, I hope this game sees the light of day on PS3.

well im just hoping this game isnt cancelled as well.
i mean even if it gets a release at this point, it will be a long shot for it to return it the money it cost to make it.
dammit. not a good week for TLG and FF13V

I'm not even thinking about this game until the announcement of a release date, I have heard nothing but bad things since the reveal trailer. I love both Ico & SotC very very much. But I have given up following this, one I get a release date, they'll get my attention again.

i accepted this as vapour ware long ago!
a BBC writer wrote a article in 05 about a amazing ps3 exclusive had had been shown, then when this was revealed he wrote a article saying yes that the last guardian was the game he had been shown.
so that means the game has been in development for at least 7 years!
thats borderline diablo 3 territory, and that only took so long because the team split up multiple times!

i really wish $ony would put allot more manpower behind their japan studio!
they have recently expanded ND and SM, i wish japan studio would be next!
they have created so many awesome unique experiences, we really need to see them be expanded give them more money and more manpower so they can continue to do so!
tis such a shame we have not had the chance to play a successor to ico.
such a spiritual awesome game!!!!!
as more and more time passes, it just feels like $ony is doing more and more to loose their japanese roots!
and its really a shame because that is exactly what made them such a unique successful company!
its almost like their ashamed of it or something.
