Sony has cast doubt over whether heavily-delayed PS3 game The Last Guardian will ever be released for PlayStation 3.

After the game's no show at E3 this week, Eurogamer quizzed Sony Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida on the status of the game.

"The team is back in Tokyo is working hard, and there are some technical difficulties that the team is focused on right now," he explained. "That's why we don't have an update."

While he stressed The Last Guardian remains "a PS3 game" he was unable to give a firm answer on whether the game will actually ever be released.

"When we have confidence in saying that, we will talk about it," he responded to a question about the game never seeing the light of day. "But today, we are working through some engineering effort."

VideoGamer.com Analysis

This doesn't sound all that promising for The Last Guardian, and could end up being one of the most high-profile cases of vapourware we've ever seen. Or could we end up seeing the game shifted over to the PS4 - a console powerful enough to overcome the dev team's engineering problems perhaps?

It would not surprise me if Sony held this game to ransom in order to extort purchase of a new console from consumers - they parted company with the concept of integrity a long time ago. :|
(that's not to say the competition is any better)

It's the PS3's equivalent of Alan Wake oh wait that was GT5. Maybe its the PS3 version of the spruce goose.

I think a lot of people expected this news, so far less wailing, gnashing of teeth, and rendering of garments than might have been expected. Sony should just cut the nonsense, and say whether it is cancelled, or been reallocated to the next console. A little transperency rather than trying all this 'maybe', 'perhaps', and 'you'll see soon enough *wink*'.

Shame, as many people claim that this was the title they bought their PS3 for in anticipation.

Although disappointing to those of us waiting for it, The Last Guardian would make perfect sense as a launch title for a new console.

Look on the bright side, all we really had to go on were an oversized budgie and the rest was all speculation.
