When we finally got an official release date for The Last Guardian at E3 this year, a ton of people were excited while some were apprehensive or cynical at the thought the game might be delayed again after such a long development process. Well, it turns out The Last Guardian is indeed going to be delayed again. The new release date is set for December 6 of this year. A couple months is almost nothing to those that have been waiting for it since it was announced almost seven years.
Shuhei Yoshida wrote on the Playstation Blog:
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.
