The Last Guardian creative director Fumito Ueda has teased that news may be on the way concerning the long-awaited action adventure game. Writing on his website, the designer told fans to "keep an eye out" for new information, though he noted the timing is ultimately up to Sony.
"I should also mention that details regarding The Last Guardian's release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement," he said.
Ueda reiterated that he left Sony some time ago to pursue other "creative passions," noting he continues to work on The Last Guardian as its creative director in a freelance capacity.
"While it's been a long time coming, The Last Guardian remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team," he said.
Formally announced at the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo, The Last Guardian tells a boy-and-his-dog tale, where the dog is a giant and feathered, yet seemingly amiable, beast. Developer Team Ico has not been forthcoming with specific plot details, but gameplay will involve the boy working with his companion to navigate a variety of environmental puzzles.
The Last Guardian has made "slow progress" for years. Sony senior vice president of product development Scott Rohde said in June that the game will ship "when it is absolutely ready." He also said Sony has no deadline whatsoever for the game.
