First announced at E3 back in 2009, The Last Guardian is easily the most-anticipated game on any current PlayStation platform. While it's gone through some re-engineering over the years, development on the follow-up to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus has never been halted.
And today, amid unverified rumors circulating on various sites, Sony was quick to reassure fans that the game is still in development. Responding directly to the hearsay, Scott Rohde, PlayStation's software product development head for Sony Worldwide Studios America, wrote on Twitter: "[Shuhei Yoshida, SCE president of worldwide studio] Sony Worldwide president] and I laughed at this rumor over dinner. The Last Guardian has NOT been cancelled."
Of course, that shouldn't really come as a surprise. Rohde said the game was still in development back in March. Back then, Rohde said that he would not "announce what platform it’s coming on, who’s working on it, who’s involved. But that is still a title that’s absolutely in the mix at Worldwide Studios."
We know that the game's original director, Fumito Ueda, is still working on the game in a freelance capacity. But we can only hope to get a glimpse of how it's been coming along next week during Sony's E3 press conference.
Personally, I'm still holding out hope that we'll not only get an announcement that it's coming to PS4, but also that it'll ship this year. Considering the game's been in development since around 2007, that seems a lot more likely than the game disappearing completely.
