The Last Guardian Has Been 'Very Difficult In Terms Of Progress'

It's been far too long since we've had any update on The Last Guardian. Now we have one, and it's every bit as vague as you might expect.

"The Last Guardian team has been making progress," said Shuhei Yoshida, speaking to VG247.

"It's been very difficult in terms of seeing the progress: not as fast as we'd been hoping for, and the team has been under big pressure. But we're still making progress, so I'd like to continue to support and keep waiting for great news sometime in the future."

Team ICO are notorious for extremely long development processes, but like a rogue cop with a penchant for destroying furniture, the get results dammit! We'd just like to see the fruits of their labour sooner rather than later.

Come on Team ICO - we want to play your game!

    Hmm I hope this isn't a bad sign :|

    It really is taking an awfully long time - this generation is nearing its end and they haven't even put out a single game for it yet.

      Given they only made 2 last gen and that making games in the current gen costs more time and takes longer (why we've seen much shorter games recently) Then this is fully expected of Team ICO.

        ICO was actually a PS1 game for most of its history (remember that it came out very early in the PS2's life), which is why it runs at the crazily small resolution of 320x240.

          ah so effectivly one game for each gen then

      To be honest, I'm willing to give Team ICO the time they need to get things right. I've had so much enjoyment with their last two games, the worst thing for me would be that they release a sub-par version.

      I know how unpredictable development can be. You can't put a timeframe on creativity and inspiration. Hence, to make this game the experience it should be, I'm happy to give them the time needed to achieve that.

      This game has taken so long that I just found myself getting sentimental about how much has changed in my life since I first got excited about Trico.

    they* get results

    It'll be a PS4 launch title

    theyre the developers that i dont mind waiting on as long as they deliver the same experience i had with Ico and things for sure by the end of this game im going to be choked up again :(
