The Last Guardian Was Probably Announced "Way Too Early"
Sony swears The Last Guardian is still in development, even if it was once again absent from the Tokyo Game Show.
The game has been surrounded by rumor and difficulty since its impressive debut unveiling way back in 2009. Lead designer Fumito Ueda left Sony to freelance work on his own, but he was still contracted to finish the game. Then there were other setbacks including "technical difficulties" that forced the developers to "redo" a fair portion of the production. Not good news.
But it is still coming, as confirmed with Kotaku. It's just that, as Ueda said, it's a "very ambitious project" and it was "probably announced way too early." Sony's new policy appears to be holding back on talking about big games until they're a little further along in the development process, which is probably a good idea.
This thing just needs to get done.
