In the news that shocked the world today, The Last Guardian is going to miss its 20112012201320142015 October 2016 launch, with the game’s release being pushed up to December instead. It’s the shortest delay Fumito Ueda’s bird-’em-up has ever had, so that’s something. Until it’s delayed again, anyway. I mean “if”, obviously, but. Uh. Let’s not.
“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,” Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida announced on the PlayStation Blog today. Or just copy-pasted from the same six million previous announcements.
“Our development continues to push itself to the fullest and we look forward to revealing new content towards the launch.”
