The lights are on
Despite some false alarms, we've received plenty of updates that the long-in-development The Last Guardian is still a game that is in development. While designer Fumito Ueda left Sony back in 2011, he's remained on the project as a contributor. Recently, he offered an update on the game on his website.
To All Interested Parties:
As some of you may have heard, I left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio some time ago to pursue my creative passions. Nevertheless, I continue working on THE LAST GUARDIAN as a freelance contributor.
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.
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.
Moving forward, it is my intent to continue my involvement with THE LAST GUARDIAN project, as well as pursue new creative projects with a fresh perspective. As I rekindle my passions as a creator, I look forward to seeing where it will take me, and I deeply appreciate your support during this transition.
A vague update, like most of these have tended to be. However, it's curious to see an update so close to Sony's February 20th press event in New York City. Will Team Ico's troubled project make an appearance?

So, thanks for nothing!!!!!!!
Great to hear the project is still alive. Wonder if The Last Guardian will be the last ps3 game.
I don't even care at this point.
I have actually been waiting for this game.. To bad we may never see it. The small plot we have gathered from it, seems like it could be real good
Any news on this game, that it is at least still in development or being released, would be wonderful news. Here's hoping that something will be said about this game on Feb. 20th.
Calling it now...PS4 launch title.
Some update... The game's been in development for how long? and we haven't seen anything on the game in a couple of years other than updates saying 'development is still ongoing'. Maybe some screens or trailer or actual gameplay footage would be nice now.
This could be exciting.
Honestly I was beginning to lose hope, but this is encouraging. I'll continue to keep the faith!
I had literally forgotten about this game until now. When I saw the article title, I thought "The Last Guardian? The heck is that?"
