Rumor: The Last Guardian Being Pushed to Next PlayStation?

PS3 PS4 Sony Playstation The Last Guardian

It had been a while since we'd last heard anything about The Last Guardian until Fumito Ueda posted a small update on his site. He let fans know that the game was still being worked on despite the length, as well as other issues. There's no doubt that the game has been in development for a very long time now since it was first announced in 2009. Is it possible that after all this time they have just decided to shoot for the next console cycle?

That's the rumor going around on NeoGAF thanks to the postings of Kenny Linder. Linder was previously employed by Sony UK's internal studio Bigbig, which closed down last year. He states that the game has been "PS4 for a long time now." He also imparts more possibly insider knowledge with the following:

"I don't know, but I know it's been in development on Orbis for a long time now. It's platform has been questionable for nearly two years, but the last time it was restarted (it's been restarted a number of times), it was moved to Orbis."


Do you think The Last Guardian will arrive for the next Sony system or will it be one of the last big games for PS3?

There is the slight possibility that we could wind up seeing it on both the PS3 and Orbis. Honestly, I think it could be one of the launch titles for the new console. They're likely to sell more systems if that is the case as a lot of folks have been wanting to play this since it was first announced.
Honestly, it seems like they might as well just push it back at this point. I've got to say, though, I can't imagine it being very good with how long it's been in development.
Agreed. A long development time never seems promising. Especially when you take into account all the other titles released with long development times.
I cancelled my pre-order for it a year ago. I'm just not sure if I'm excited about it anymore at this point. Games that take too long to develop almost always end up bad.
Honestly, at this rate, we'll probably be a good year or so into the PS4's life cycle before we hear anything official about this game. At any rate, I don't see it coming to PS3 anymore with all the buzz surrounding the next generation consoles, because Sony would be foolish to let a game they've spent a lot of time and (presumably) money on get overshadowed by a new console release.
