Well that was an interesting near two hours. Apparently Sony’s head of worldwide studios, Shuhei Yoshida, has come out with a statement that The Last Guardian, previously reported to have been put on “hiatus” is in fact still in active development.
Here is the quote from Kotaku:
“That hiatus term—I’m not a native English-speaking person—but that’s misleading,” Yoshida told me a few minutes ago during an interview here at E3. He’d watched Tretton’s comments on Spike.com while eating lunch. “The game is in active development. [Lead designer Fumito] Ueda-san shared updates a few months ago. Nothing has changed. My answer is, ‘Yes, the game is in active development.’ It’s not hiatus at all. But we are not ready to reintroduce it. When we are ready, we will do that. Please wait.”
It appears our long waiting must continue now.
