The Last Guardian has been handed yet another delay, this time moving its release date from October 28 to December 9, Sony has announced.
“The Last Guardian development team is fast-approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian by a few weeks. The Last Guardian will launch on 7th December 2016, across Europe and 9th December 2016 across UK & Ireland,” said Shuhei Yoshida, President, SCE Worldwide Studios.
It turns out more time is needed to iron out some bugs and apply some polish.
“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,” adds Yoshida. “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.
“Our development continues to push itself to the fullest and we look forward to revealing new content toward launch.”
