Long-Awaited "The Last Guardian" Delayed Again, Now to December 6

Sony updates on release plans for Fumito Ueda's latest

Fumito Ueda's The Last Guardian was first announced for PlayStation 3 way back in 2009, and has been in the works since 2007. It's understandable then that the excitement was so palpable when Sony gave it a concrete October 25 launch date on PlayStation 4, but a new update has the game being hit with another delay.


The bad news: The Last Guardian is now coming out on December 6. The good news? Hey, at least it's still planned for 2016. 


Here's more of what Sony president Shuhei Yoshida had to say:


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.
