The Last Guardian, the long-awaited PlayStation 4 exclusive, has been delayed one last time, Shuhei Yoshida, president of SCE Worldwide Studios, announced.
The game was due to arrive on October 25th, but is now set to launch December 6th, a post on the PlayStation Blog revealed. The decision to delay was taken due to the team discovering more bugs than anticipated.
“Fumito Ueda, gen DESIGN and JAPAN Studio have a wonderful vision for The Last Guardian?s touching, emotional journey of friendship and trust, and we want to deliver the most polished experience possible for our fans who have supported us for so long,” Yoshida wrote. “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.
“Our development continues to push itself to the fullest and we look forward to revealing new content toward launch.”
The Last Guardian was first announced for PlayStation 3 back in 2009.
