The Last Guardian, the latest project from the team behind Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, has been long silent. When we last heard from it, it was a PlayStation 3 title. But rumors have suggested it’s since gone to PlayStation 4.
During a recent interview, GamesIndustry.biz asked Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida which console the game will come out for.
“Ahh… That, I cannot talk about,” Yoshida responded.
The website suggested it wouldn’t make sense for the game to launch on PlayStation 3 so late in its lifespan.
“So, we’re waiting for the right time to re-introduce The Last Guardian in an appropriate way,” Yoshida said. “I can’t… Well, the game is in development, and it’s well staffed, and [Fumito] Ueda-san is here, working – even though he’s not a Sony employee, he’s dedicated to the product. But we’re not ready to update yet.”
Sony Computer Entertainment America boss Jack Tretton at E3 said the game was on “hiatus.” Yoshida again clarified that the game “has never stopped” production, and that “it was on hiatus in terms of releasing new information.”
