Prior to E3, designer Fumito Ueda hinted that we should expect news about The Last Guardian soon. Unfortunately, I don’t think this is the news anyone wanted.
Talking to Game Trailers’ Geoff Keighley, who tweeted the comment, Sony CEO Jack Tretton stated that The Last Guardian is “on hiatus.
The final entry in the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus trilogy was first announced at E3 2009. The status of its development has fluctuated since, breeding rumors of cancelation as well as a bump to the PlayStation 4. Now, it seems, that its development is on hold.
Tretton offered no other details about the state of The Last Guardian, or why the project had been put on “hiatus.”
