We should have known this was going to happen, shouldn’t we? Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed today over on the PlayStation Blog that the long-awaited The Last Guardian has been delayed. Again.
To be fair, it’s not that bad. The Last Guardian reared its mythical head at this year’s E3 and a planned release date of October 25th followed soon after. However, that release date is no long applicable.
Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Shuhei Yoshida explained that Fumito Ueda and Japan Studio are hitting important milestones in the game’s development and that they want to deliver the most polished product possible and that means getting rid of the last remaining bugs. Unfortunately for the teams, there are more bugs than they realised, so they need some extra time to get things in order. As a result, The Last Guardian will now release on December 6th, 2016. A couple of months is better than a few years, right?
We’re still betting that there’ll be a day-one update, though. £10 on the table, any offers?
