The Last Guardian progress has been “difficult” – Sony

It’s been quite a wait for Team ICO’s The Last Guardian, and the development cycle clearly hasn’t been easy for Sony and co. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re going to have to keep waiting for details throughout the rest of 2011. That is if Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida is to be believed (which he kind of is).

The Last Guardian team has been making progress,” the Sony exec said in an interview with VG247. “It’s been very difficult in terms of seeing the progress: not as fast as we’d been hoping for, and the team has been under big pressure. But we’re still making progress, so I’d like to continue to support and keep waiting for great news sometime in the future.”

When asked if we could hear about the game at TGS this year, Yoshida replied: “I’d say it could be a little bit longer.”

Bummer. Well we’ll keep on waiting patiently, because everyone knows that this one should be something special.
