The Last Guardian garnered quite a bit of attention last weekend when a rumour that the game was cancelled spread like wildfire on the internet. Thankfully, SCE president Shuhei Yoshida quickly quashed the rumour before things got out of hand.
Yoshida recently spoke to Eurogamer about the issue and had this to say:
“Lots of people tweeted me they were heartbroken by that news [prior to the show]. People are going through this roller coaster of emotions, and it’s our fault for not releasing the game, yet. We owe a lot to those people, but we really don’t want to release piecemeal information until we can say this is The Last Guardian – so we ask you to wait.”
From his reply, it seems clear that The Last Guardian simply isn’t ready yet and we’ll have to wait a little longer before the development team deems it ready for public viewing. Hopefully it won’t fall into the same trap that Final Fantasy XV did, though I suspect it may already be a little too late for that.
