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?

I'm going to predict that when this game is released it will unleash a flood of tears from how moving it is--like all of Fumito Ueda's games.
Vague or not, I'll take any good news related to this game. If it's still going and in control of the creator, it's good.
I'm glad to hear that this is still a thing...
wow. its still alive!
Damn that thing is ugly.
Because Team Ico Was Behind "Ico" And "Shadow OF The Colossus" Resembled I'm Sure This Game Will Be Worth the Wait
This is definitely good news. I hope that they are able to make this game just the way they want it to be, and that it's worth the wait. I'm sure it will be.
