The Last Guardian gets delayed to December 2016

Will The Last Guardian ever be released?

Sony has confirmed The Last Guardian is being hit with yet another delay, although it’s nowhere near as lengthy as its previous ones as the game is now scheduled to release on December 6, 2016.

Earlier this year, The Last Guardian creator confirmed the game would launch this year shortly before it made its triumphant return during E3 2016. At the time, Sony revealed The Last Guardian would launch on October 25, but as we learned today, that will no longer be the case.

Sony Computer Entertainment president Shuhei Yoshida revealed the decision to delay The Last Guardian was a tough one, although he feels it to be a necessary one. “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,” Yoshida-san writes in a PlayStation.Blog post. “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.”

The Last Guardian has been delayed a number of times over the years, leading many to believe the project was canned altogether especially after Sony abandoned its trademark. Shortly after abandoning the trademark, Sony revived its trademark and promised the game would release in 2016. Let’s just hope Sony is able to squash all of its last-minute bugs so we can experience The Last Guardian prior to the end of the year.
