Sony has provided an update on the development of The Last Guardian, and this is the season of delays, it would seem. According to the new update post, the game has been pushed back to December 6 of this year as the team needs more time to address some persisting bugs and other issues.
‘The Last Guardian development team is fast approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian a few weeks. The Last Guardian will launch on December 6, 2016.
A delay is a difficult decision, particularly with this game, but we have encountered more bugs than anticipated while in the final stages of development. To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game’s creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues.’
A two-month delay honestly isn’t that big of a deal. With a game that’s been through years of development like this one, it’s only natural that the team would want to take all the time they need to make sure it’s as good as it can be.
The Last Guardian is set to be released for the PS4 on December 6.
