The Last Guardian Hasn’t Been Canceled After All
Yesterday there was a rumour going around that The Last Guardian had been canceled. My first thought was “finally.”
For a game that was meant to release back in 2011 it would probably be better off cancelled but as fate would have it, the initial report was false.
The report came from IGN who cited a supposedly reliable source and stated that The Last Guardian had officially been cancelled. The original statement was then retracted saying instead that the game might be canceled.
PlayStation Software Product Development Head for Sony Worldwide Studios America Scott Rohde quickly dismissed this.

The Last Guardian has been circling the drain for years now. We’ve seen next to nothing of it, the game is over three years overdue and really where is the hype for this game even coming from?
Geoff Keighley the came out to assure everybody that the game is far from dead and is in fact in full development with Team Ico over in Japan. This came after an interview with the new CEO of SCEA Shawn Layden.
Just interviewed Shawn Layden, new CEO of SCEA. He says The Last Guardian is in full development in Japan. Unequivocally. Full intvu tmrw.

In the wake of all this, IGN apologised for the original article that started all this.
Looking ahead, could we see The Last Guardian announced for PS4 later at Sony’s E3 press conference?
