long in the making Sony title by the name of The Last Guardian is officially "on hiatus," reveals Jack Tretton, but offers hope when he says it "isn't going away" - projects "never ultimately go away."
That's one of the "cool things" about having worldwide development teams working around the clock. The Last Guardian was announced for PS3 back in 2009.
If they plan on keeping this hiatus going then it stands to reason the PlayStation 3 will get overlooked in favour of the meatier PS4 experience. Sony isn't saying much else.
"The cool thing about our worldwide development studios is we have so many projects out there from so many different teams," Tretton told GameTrailers. "Projects never ultimately go away. The Last Guardian isn't going away but is on hiatus right now." Sony's Jim Ryan adds he doesn't believe it's been cancelled, when grilled by .
"Had it been cancelled, some sort of announcement would have been made. I think the watch-word is patience," said Ryan. The Last Guardian sprung from the minds of Team Ico and has us take the role of a boy exploring some ruins with the aid of a rather large creature, initially hostile to us. They bond as friends to solve puzzles and fight enemies.
