The Last Guardian is making slow progress says Shuhei Yoshida
The boss of Sony Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, has been reassuring those waiting for the game that they are still making progress.
The Last Guardian has been beset with delays and even more question marks were raised when the game's creator Fumito Ueda confirmed he was leaving Team ICO but would see the project through to its completion on a freelance basis.
Yoshida-san said, "The project has been making progress, but slow progress. So that's tough, but we haven't changed any focus. It's still a really important project and a vision we want to see realized, and Fumito's vision is really causing a very difficult challenge for the developers, so there's some scrapping and rebuilding iteration in the process. That's why [it's taking so long]."
He added on Fumito Ueda's commitment to the project, "He comes in every day, and he's probably one of the people who works the longest hours. He was an employee, and now he's working on a contract basis. You know, we discussed an arrangement so he could focus on the creative side. But his work and his presence on that team never changed, so it was just more a contractual rearrangement."
