‘The Last Guardian’ Has Been Delayed Again

Posted by at 3:35 pm on April 20, 2011

The PlayStation 3 game The Last Guardian will not be released this holiday season, Sony said Wednesday.

“To provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone (the game’s) release timing,” said director Fumito Ueda via a post on the PlayStation blog. He said he would announce a new release window for the game at a later date.

It wasn’t that long ago that Sony nailed down the long-delayed game’s former holiday 2011 release date at a Tokyo Game Show event.

The Last Guardian is the followup to Sony’s critically acclaimed, innovative, artsy PlayStation 2 games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Sadly the game did not do that well at retail. The games are made by a small team of only about 35 people in Sony’s small internal Japanese development studio, a team that is clearly both taking its time to ensure that the final product is up to fans’ standards.
