This long awaited Team ICO / Playstation exclusive has been stuck in a sort of development limbo for the past six years, however Ueda claims his work on the game was finished “a long time ago”. Ueda went on to tell Edge that he was “terribly sorry for that for various reasons I have kept my audience waiting for such a long time.”
While the game is still in production, Ueda has since left SCEJ, opting to go freelance with them instead. Stating the decision “was not easy”, he explains he just wasn’t happy with the direction his career was heading.
When asked if he had any idea when The Last Guardian would be released, Ueda responded that “The details of when, where and how it will be completed are beyond my control”.
