The lights are on
Fans have been waiting forever it seems to see the latest on Sony's long-developed first-party game The Last Guardian.
It was reported last December that creator Fumito Ueda left the studio and was finishing the game on a contract basis. When we talked to head of Sony's worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida in mid-February, he said of the game, "It’s making progress. There have been technical issues and the engineering team is reworking it. It’s playable, but not to the level of when we can say it’s coming."
This brings us to today. I asked Sony PR if there were any plans to show the game off at E3 next month. "The Last Guardian continues to be developed, however we have no news to share at this time with regard to the franchise and E3," a spokesperson told me.
Now, before you freak out, Sony isn't saying whether or not the game will be at E3. We'll to find out in a few weeks if the game is part of the company's press conference or not.
The Last Guardian is clearly in development hell and Sony isn't likely to show off the game again until things are stabilized and back on track. If they can't show it at E3, then SCEA president Jack Tretton needs to take the stage and at least reassure fans that Sony is still backing the project heavily.
What are your overall thoughts on The Last Guardian? Do you still care about this game? Should Sony move it to next-gen at this point or cut its losses and put out whatever the got?
big wolf wing o_o
I'll sob in a corner while listening to www.youtube.com/watch
Probably cuss and shake my fist.
As long as the game does eventually release, whether it be a month or years from now, I can handle the wait. Just please don't cancel it Sony. I believe that would be a huge mistake at this point.
I just wish they would have waited on showing footage. Skyrim/Max Payne 3 had the timing perfect for me in terms of a trailer then release date.
I cannot wait for this game, I'm a huge fan of Ico and SotC, I NEED this game in my life! Sony better get it together! There's not too many unique and creative games out there, this will be one of them...
Nothing, because I'm not interested in this game. :)
I really hope they are still gonna be able to put this game out for fans to enjoy. I was very interested in it when first announced but as time has past I feel like it's never gonna come out. And god forbid they release it and it's all bugged and crappy.
Cry a little. Then play Ico.
I'll play more mass effect 3, dragon's dogma, future soldier and NCAA football...... In other words there are so many awesome games I just don't care. I actually don't want another game that I have to have come out soon. I remember about 2 years ago there was kind of a drought. I was buying some older used games I wanted to play for a while. I just can't catch up now. This is the best time to be a gamer. He'll, I'll probably start another character in skyrim.
Probably get on with my life.
heads are gonna ****ing roll!!!
Development hell is sad.
Waiting still waiting Sony testing our patience :|
The Team Ico collection was some of the best gaming I've done the last few years.
I care deeply that this game is done right and released properly. There's enough to keep me occupied until then
it might be in limbo but i know we'll see it before the likes of a Half-life 3 game,so i will just wait,and be patient.not to offend any valve fans,but it's true.
