In what is has been another disappoint this year, The Last Guardian is getting delayed once more to allow developers more time for polish. The Last Guardian is famously known as being vapourware, software that continually has no release in sight. The original reveal of the game spans back all the way to 2009 when it revealed at E3 to be released on PlayStation 4. We can expect to see the game on December 6th now.
The Last Guardian development team is fast approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian a few weeks. The Last Guardian will launch on December 6, 2016.
Fumito Ueda, gen DESIGN and JAPAN Studio have a wonderful vision for The Last Guardian’s touching, emotional journey of friendship and trust, and we want to deliver the most polished experience possible for our fans who have supported us for so long. A delay is a difficult decision, particularly with this game, but we have encountered more bugs than anticipated while in the final stages of development. To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game’s creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues.
Our development continues to push itself to the fullest and we look forward to revealing new content toward launch.
