The Last Guardian Delayed to December

September 12, 2016

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus developer Fumito Ueda’s next game, the long-awaited The Last Guardian has been delayed yet again. Originally slated for release on October 25, the game will now launch on December 6.

In a post at Sony’s official Playstation Blog, Shuhei Yoshida relayed the feelings of the development team:

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.

Yoshida also mentioned that there would be some reveals of new content for the game between now and the new release date.
