A couple weeks ago Shuhei Yoshida told Famitsu that the mysteriously disappeared PS3 title by Team Ico The Last Guardian is still in development, and today he gave more info on what’s up with the game in an interview on GamesIndustry International.
When asked if the game was still being developed in the building where the interview was taking place he confirmed:
He was also asked what console the game will be released on, but the response was rather obvious:
The interviewer argued that it wouldn’t make much sense to release the game on PS3 this late in the console’s lifetime, and said that the developers have PS4 DevKits in their offices because he heard them talking about it. Yoshida-san explained:
Finally, Yoshida-san was asked if the “hiatus” the game’s development was allegedly put on is now finally over.
“Re-engineering” to me definitely sounds like moving the game to the PS4, but of course we have no way to know that for sure. We’ll have to wait and see. In the meanwhile we can all be relieved by the fact that game is still worked on by Fumito Ueda himself.
