For some, this is a very sensitive subject. But the fact that these words come from the mouth of Fumitu Ueda, former boss of SCE Japan’s Team Ico division, should be encouraging.
To All Interested Parties:
As some of you may have heard, I left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio some time ago to pursue my creative passions. Nevertheless, I continue working on The Last Guardian as a freelance contributor.
While it’s been a long time coming, The Last Guardian remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team.
I should also mention that details regarding The Last Guardian ‘s release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.
Moving forward, it is my intent to continue my involvement with The Last Guardian project, as well as pursue new creative projects with a fresh perspective. As I rekindle my passions as a creator, I look forward to seeing where it will take me, and I deeply appreciate your support during this transition.
– Fumito Ueda
This is actual, concrete proof that The Last Guardian is still in development and hasn’t been cancelled. That’s better than nothing, right?
