The Last Guardian Not A Top Priority For SCE Japan Studio?
It's still vague, but at least it's an update...kinda.
We didn't hear about The Last Guardian at Gamescom, and it's just another event that has passed without mention of the long-awaited title.
However, during a recent Famitsu interview with Team ICO creative director Fumito Ueda (as cited by Polygon), we find that the game is still in development. The only problem is that it doesn't top SCE Japan Studio's priority list right now:
"It's under earnest development. However, SCE Japan Studio, who's working on The Last Guardian, also has titles like Puppeteer and Knack, and those are only the ones currently announced. Those are taking priority right now."
That's a little disconcerting. It almost sounds as if he's saying the game is on the back burner, despite his "earnest development" comment. Is it because they're waiting to make the transition to the PlayStation 4? Knack is one of the PS4's confirmed launch titles, even though Puppeteer is just a digital title for the PS3. At this point, one would have to assume that Guardian has become a PS4 exclusive, right?
