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?
