As reported by Eurogamer on Wednesday, June 11, Sony Computer Entertainment’s president of Worldwide Studios–Shuhei Yoshida–explained why Shadow of the Colossus developer Team Ico’s The Last Guardian didn’t make an appearance at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles.
While the game has been supposedly “confirmed” to release in early 2015 for PlayStation 4 , Sony had some troubling days prior to E3 due to the confusion of whether or not The Last Guardian had been cancelled. It was because of this confusion that the game wasn’t showcased at the event, one may assume.
” There were a difficult couple of days before the show – I’m sure you noticed, ” Yoshida explained to Eurogamer. ” I’m so happy it was retracted before the show happened. ”
” Lots of people tweeted me they were heartbroken by that news [prior to the show], ” Yoshida continued. “ People are going through this roller coaster of emotions, and it’s our fault for not releasing the game, yet. We owe a lot to those people, but we really don’t want to release piecemeal information until we can say this is The Last Guardian –so we ask you to wait. ”
We’ll bring you more information on The Last Guardian should it reach our ears. Stay tuned for more E3 coverage throughout this week.
