last-guardian 28 Aug

Another major blow has hit the production of The Last Guardian, as developer Team Ico has seen another major departure. Following in the footsteps of team lead Fumito Ueda, who left late last year, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Producer Kenji Kaido has parted ways with Sony. Announcing the move via his Twitter account (link is in Japanese), Kaido has not made any announcements in regards to his future plans.

The Last Guardian has been a troubled IP for Sony for years now, with the company recently having to release multiple statements to counter rumors of the game’s outright cancellation; first at this year’s E3, then following its decision to let the trademark on the phrase lapse earlier this month.
