The Last Guardian, ICO/SotC Collection delayed

Sony Computer Entertainment has today announced the delay of Team ICO’s The Last Guardian and the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus Collection. Originally scheduled for holiday and spring releases (respectively), their new dates are still to be announced.

Project lead Fumito Ueda addressed the delay on the PlayStation.Blog, promising a new release date “at a later time”.

“I announced at last year’s Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011.

“However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.

“All the members of my production team are working together at a fast pace to develop and release the game in First Party Studio quality.

“I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for “The Last Guardian” for so long, but I beg for your patience. I will also announce the new release timing at a later time.”

Stay tuned for future updates.
