The Last Guardian Suffering From “Technical Difficulties,” Says Sony Pres
If you were heartbroken over not seeing The Last Guardian at E3 this year, then you need to do a bit of catching up. The highly-anticipated game from the makers of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus has seen delay after delay, and after reading Sony Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida’s recent interview with Eurogamer at E3, I’ve lost all hope of seeing The Last Guardian this year.
“The team back in Tokyo is working hard, and there are some technical difficulties that the team is focused on right now,” said Yoshida. “That’s why we don’t have an update.” That’s pretty evasive, yes, but to admit tech-related issues at this point in the game’s 1000-year development cycle (okay, maybe only about 3+, but it seems like an eternity) is a terrible sign.
When asked whether the Last Guardian is planned for a next-gen release, Yoshida responded, “What does that question mean [is it still a PS3 game]? It is a PS3 game.”
On the bright side, at least The Last Guardian hasn’t been cancelled. Unless I just jinxed it. Oh no…
