The Last Guardian moved to PS4, says former Sony employee

"It's been PS4 for a long time now," says ex-Bigbig staffer.

Kenny Linder, a former employee of shuttered Sony UK studio Bigbig, has said that The Last Guardian, originally announced for PlayStation 3, is now a PlayStation 4 title.

“It’s PS4,” he said on NeoGAF. “It’s been PS4 for a long time now.”

Asked if it was planned for launch or launch window, he said, “I don’t know, but I know it’s been in development on Orbis for a long time now.

“Its platform has been questionable for nearly two years, but the last time it was restarted (it’s been restarted a number of times), it was moved to Orbis [the codename for PlayStation 4].”

The Last Guardian creative lead Fumito Ueda posted an update Wednesday on the game’s status. With the message posted a week before Sony’s PlayStation 4 reveal event on February 20, some have suggested it means we’ll see the game resurface as a PlayStation 4 title next week.
