The Last Guardian & Team ICO Collection Delayed

by on April 20, 2011

We’re sorry that you might be waking up to read this news, but sadly, not all news can be good news!

Both The Last Guardian and the Team ICO Remastered Collection of Shadow of the Colossus and ICO have been delayed. This news comes directly from the director/game designer of The Last Guardian, Fumito Euda:

“I announced at last year’s Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011.”

“However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.

All the members of my production team are working together at a fast pace to develop and release the game in First Party Studio quality.

I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for “The Last Guardian” for so long, but I beg for your patience. I will also announce the new release timing at a later time.”

This is very sad news indeed, but let’s face it; if it means we get a higher quality of product, then the wait will be worth it!

The Team ICO Collection was due out in Spring, and The Last Guardian this Winter, we’ll bring you the new release windows when we have them.
