Brian Ashcraft wrote:Even though Sony recently "abandoned" its Last Guardian trademark, that means nothing. Work on the game, Sony and its creator say, continues. But does it continue to be for the PlayStation 3?
When asked if the game was going to be released on the PlayStation 4, Sony's Shuhei Yoshida insisted that the game is a PS3 title, telling Eurogamer, "The game is developed on PS3."
So what's the hold up? According to Yoshida, "We had the game playable. At one point we felt that it would be produced for a certain time period. That was the time we prematurely talked about the launch window. But it turned out the technical issues are much harder to solve. So the engineering team had to go back and re-do some of the work they had done."
Somewhere along the line, however, the game's designer, Fumito Ueda, left Sony as an employee. However, he is working still working on the title in a contracted freelance capacity. Western studios have been brought in to finish the title.
Forget hearing that this is still a PS3 game, it's good to hear that this is still, well, a game.
Check out Kotaku's "eyes on" impressions of The Last Guardian.

To All Interested Parties:
As some of you may have heard, I left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio some time ago to pursue my creative passions. Nevertheless, I continue working on THE LAST GUARDIAN as a freelance contributor.
While it’s been a long time coming, THE LAST GUARDIAN remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team.
I should also mention that details regarding THE LAST GUARDIAN's release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.
Moving forward, it is my intent to continue my involvement with THE LAST GUARDIAN project, as well as pursue new creative projects with a fresh perspective. As I rekindle my passions as a creator, I look forward to seeing where it will take me, and I deeply appreciate your support during this transition.
Seems this is a response to a lot of frustrated people asking him about when the hell the game is being released.

Kenny Linder, a former employee of shuttered Sony UK studio Bigbig, has said that The Last Guardian, originally announced for PlayStation 3, is now a PlayStation 4 title.
“It’s PS4,” he said on NeoGAF. “It’s been PS4 for a long time now.”
Asked if it was planned for launch or launch window, he said, “I don’t know, but I know it’s been in development on Orbis for a long time now."
“Its platform has been questionable for nearly two years, but the last time it was restarted (it’s been restarted a number of times), it was moved to Orbis [the codename for PlayStation 4].”
The Last Guardian creative lead Fumito Ueda posted an update Wednesday on the game’s status. With the message posted a week before Sony’s PlayStation 4 reveal event on February 20, some have suggested it means we’ll see the game resurface as a PlayStation 4 title next week.

While many at IGN have been eagerly hoping for the appearance of The Last Guardian at E3 this year, we won’t be seeing the game anymore. IGN has received a report this evening that “The Last Guardian is finally cancelled.” According to our sources, the information was disclosed in “Sony’s internal meeting last week.” Last March, Scott Rohde, Head of Software Product Development at Sony, told IGN The Last Guardian is still “absolutely in the mix at Sony Worldwide Studios.” The game was first revealed at E3 in 2009 with a projected release date of 2011. While 2011 didn’t see the release of the game, we did finally get a chance to see the game running in March of that year. In 2012 Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the game was still in development, despite the withdrawal of the game’s executive producer, Yoshifusa Hayama, and the departure shortly after of Team ICO’s founder, Fumito Ueda.

@notaxation @yosp and I laughed at this rumor over dinner. The Last Guardian has NOT been cancelled.
