'sigh' What now?
Unfortunately, after years of such vague updates, it's really the only reaction we can muster.
The Last Guardian was a no-show at yet another industry event last weekend (PlayStation Experience), and there might be a reason for that. I mean, a reason beyond the standard, "it isn't ready yet."
According to this week's Dengeki PlayStation issue (as translated by Kotaku ), game director Fumito Ueda said the game is now moving forward under "completely new conditions."
"Talks with Sony Computer Entertainment on The Last Guardian have been ironed out, and we're making progress under completely new conditions. I'm also working on some other things that I'll hopefully be able to show in time if progress is smooth."
That is not the update we were hoping for. Ueda didn't clarify the "new conditions" phrase but it's feasible that he's talking about a transition from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4. It's a little ridiculous to think Guardian isn't being made for PS4 by this point, especially considering that it won't be ready for a while.
Anyway, it doesn't sound like we'll be seeing the game any time soon, regardless of intended platform. So really, what else is new?
