Development on Sony's long-awaited PlayStation 3 adventure game The Last Guardian continues, though the company is waiting for the right time to "reintroduce" it, according to worldwide studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

"The team is still there in SCE Japan Studio, [creative director Fumito Ueda] is still there, but we are still waiting for the time to reintroduce it," Yoshida told Game Informer from the 2013 Tokyo Game Show.

Ueda said last month that The Last Guardian is in "earnest" development, though games like Puppeteer and PlayStation 4 launch title Knack were taking priority.

"It's under earnest development," Ueda said at the time. "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."

The Last Guardian has made "slow progress" for years. Sony senior vice president of product development Scott Rohde said during E3 2012 that the game will ship "when it is absolutely ready." He also said Sony has no deadline whatsoever for the game.

The Last Guardian was formally announced at the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
