The Last Guardian's Trademark Filed a Third Time
Maybe the third time's the charm?
Earlier this year, we reported that Sony had abandoned the trademark for The Last Guardian. At the time, the company said that it would be following up with that trademark. As of March 12, a new trademark for a Last Guardian game has been filed, and it is currently pending approval according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (via NeoGaf).
The game has been in development for the better part of a decade. Despite rumors of cancellation, Sony told GameSpot last month that it "can confirm that the Last Guardian is still in development."
Last year, director Fumito Ueda said Team Ico was "making progress under completely new conditions." There's still been no word on what exactly Ueda meant by "new conditions," but it comes after repeated claims that the game is making "slow progress" and that Sony is "reengineering" the project.
