To say that The Last Guardian has had a troubled development life would be an understatement. After a series of no-shows at game conferences and delays, it was expected that it would be released on October 25. However, its release has been pushed back yet again.
On the PlayStation Blog, it was revealed that The Last Guardian will now be released on December 9. The blog post explained that “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.”
It’s been a long road, and unfortunately those looking forward to The Last Guardian will have to wait a little while longer.
The Last Guardian will be released on December 9.
