Fumito Ueda Is Sorry You Have Waited So Long For The Last Guardian

It's a real tragedy that The Last Guardian has gone from one of the most anticipated games on the PlayStation 3 to a weird kind of running joke amongst those who love Fumito Ueda's work. When the initial trailer for the game was released we were dazzled, but years have passed with no word as to a concrete release date. For that, Ueda has apologised.

"[M]ore than anything I feel terribly sorry that for various reasons I have kept my audience waiting for such a long time," he explained, in an interview with Edge.

The interview reveals very little about the game itself, or of the circumstances regarding his departure from Sony. He did confirm that he is continuing to work on The Last Guardian, but stated that his own creative work on the game "was mostly finished a long time ago". According to Ueda "the details of when, where and how it will be completed" are beyond his control.

    So... if he has finished his part, whose hands is it in now??

      The studios still making it. He was just creative director till he left.
      He stayed partially on as an advisor if you will.

    Would not be surprised to see this at e3 2014 and it turned into a PS4 game. Although my excitement for this game went away long ago, i am sure that a new trailer would make it come back

      I suspect that's why it's been put of for so long, because it's being re-tooled for the PS4.

      Fingers crossed it doesn make an appearance at E3 2014 or at the very least TGS 2014.

      Oh well, it'll give me an excuse to buy a PS4.

    As much as I would love to see this game released, to be honest I'd rather they just buried it rather than release something not up to the standard of Ico and SotC. The only thing worse than no Fumito Ueda game would be a disappointing Fumito Ueda game :(

    I think the only acceptable apology would be just to announce a release date...
