The Last Guardian director Fumito Ueda is “terribly sorry” for the lengthy wait fans have faced since the game’s 2009 reveal, he told Edge magazine.
“Putting aside the short-term output, more than anything I feel terribly sorry that for various reasons I have kept my audience waiting for such a long time,” Ueda said.
Ueda left Sony in 2011, but has continued working on The Last Guardian as a freelance developer. He still comes into Sony Japan’s Shinagawa office regularly.
The Last Guardian, announced for PlayStation 3 at E3 2009, has long been suspected to be moved to PlayStation 4. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida recently said he ‘couldn’t recall’ if he last played the game with a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 controller.
