The Last Guardian has taken its sweet time. That's an understatement. But since it's relaunch as a PlayStation 4 game at E3 last year, a release date has seemed like a more realistic, palpable thing.
And, if you believe Fumito Ueda, it's coming out this year. As in 2016. Probably.
The Last Guardian is on the cover of the latest issue of Edge magazine, and features an extensive hands-on preview of the game itself. But one statement from the game's creator suggests everyone will get the chance to play before the end of the year.
"Since this is the year we will see the game's release,"he said, in an accompanying Q&A, "I do have some worries, but I'm also very excited."
I mean you have to assume this means that The Last Guardian is set for release this year. Unless Ueda's being obtuse and referring to like a year from this very point. This seems unlikely.
Regardless, we've asked Sony locally if they are able to confirm the 2016 release date. We'll update if we hear back.
UPDATE: Sony Australia has confirmed to us that The Last Guardian will be released in 2016. So there you have it.
