Shuhei Yoshida, head of SCE Worldwide Studios, responded to recent reports that claimed Team Ico’s The Last Guardian had been cancelled in an interview with Polygon.
“It exists. The team is working hard on it,” Yoshida said. “I was heartbroken when some article came out on some major site saying it was canceled.”
“When we cancel a title and it is something we have announced already, we’ll say so.” he explained. “It’s a highly anticipated title, we have to do so.”
The Last Guardian was originally announced for the PS3 in 2009, with the game’s status being questioned first when lead designer Fumito Ueda resigned from the studio in 2011. Reports in October last year claimed the game was being “re-engineered” suggesting it will be released for the PlayStation 4.
