Fumito Ueda posts The Last Guardian update

'The Last Guardian is still in development,' says lead designer.

Fumitu Ueda, the former boss of SCE Japan Studio’s Team Ico division, has posted an update on upcoming PlayStation 3 title The Last Guardian on his official website.

To All Interested Parties:

As some of you may have heard, I left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio some time ago to pursue my creative passions. Nevertheless, I continue working on The Last Guardian as a freelance contributor.

While it’s been a long time coming, The Last Guardian remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team.

I should also mention that details regarding The Last Guardian‘s release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.

Moving forward, it is my intent to continue my involvement with The Last Guardian project, as well as pursue new creative projects with a fresh perspective. As I rekindle my passions as a creator, I look forward to seeing where it will take me, and I deeply appreciate your support during this transition.

– Fumito Ueda

Thanks, Famitsu.
