The Last Guardian is without a doubt one of the most anticipated titles on the PS3 — very much in the danger of becoming vaporware. Last week, we learnt that Sony has dropped The Last Guardian trademark and although Sony Worldwide Studio President, Shuhei Yoshida has assured us on various occasions that the game is still very much in development, many are already prepared to call the game off and never appearing on the PS3.
In a short interview with Eurogamer, Shuhei Yoshida was quoted as saying “The team is still working on it very hard. There are certain technical issues they’ve been working on. That’s the period of time when the game, looking from the outside, doesn’t seem to be making much progress. But internally there is a lot of work going into creating the title.”
According to Yoshida, the main reason for the game being completely in the mist from the public is due to the fact that the programmers needed to “re-do” the game from the ground up — not quite literally. From a game development standpoint, this means that a lot of the assets that were already in place needs to be unpacked and rehash once again into the game. As explained by Yoshida, they are mostly technical reasons and has nothing to do with the game’s art.
Once again Yoshida has insisted that The Last Guardian still is an in-development title for the PS3, exclusively. Just keep being hopeful guys.
