Team Ico's highly anticipated game The Last Guardian has experienced its fair share of bumps recently, with the executive producer and project lead Fumito Ueda both leaving Sony. But this does not spell the end for the game.
Sony's development teams in the US and UK and teaming up with Team Ico to finish The Last Guardian.
Sony World Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said in an interview with Eurogamer that Sony Santa Monica — the studio behind God of War — is one of the studios helping out.
"We have great tech people in Worldwide Studios. We have a central tech group in the US and the UK so we are giving them whatever help they need," he said.
"Technically, we have the best engineers in the US and Europe, so these teams are helping them, giving advice."
According to Yoshida, progress is being made slowly but steadily.
"At one point the progress was great, so we talked about the timing of the launch in the past. But now it's making progress, but still not to the level — it's playable, but not to the point that we can talk about the timing of launch."
The Last Guardian was announced in 2009. The last game Team Ico made by the PlayStation 2 classic, Shadows of the Colossus.
