Posted on December 5, 2011, Phil Owen Ueda Says He’s Still Working on The Last Guardian
Last week, we heard a troubling report about Team Ico’s Fumito Ueda: namely, that’d left the company. He says fear not, for he is still working on The Last Guardian — we had heard he was, but that he was doing so on a freelance basis.
いろいろと問い合わせいただいてますが… 相も変わらず『人喰いの大鷲トリコ（The Last Guardian）』は鋭意制作中ですのでご心配なく。
Basically, he said he’s received many questions, but we should not worry, because he’s still working on the game. He does not, of course, really address the whole situation. The continuing silence from all official sources tells me the story has to be true. If it weren’t, Ueda would just say so, instead of pretty much dodging the question.
And so we have made no progress here, really.
