Yoshida: Last Guardian still has "nothing concrete" to show

"The last time we talked about a date for The Last Guardian, we disappointed many people"

Shuhei Yoshida has yet more disappointing news for fans of The Last Guardian, as he refused to commit to a release date for the bird-dog adventure.

"No, sorry, I can not say that ... Because the last time we talked about a date for The Last Guardian, we disappointed many people," the president of Sony's Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment told French site JeuxVideo

"But I can tell you that the team is working hard on the project, including the engine. It is precisely because the team is working on the technical aspect of the game that we have nothing concrete to show you today."

The game has almost become a running joke within the industry, which has been in production since at least 2008. The game was first revealed at 2009's E3, and a release date of 2011 soon followed. Since then it has seen its designer and director Fumito Ueda quit the development team, but continuing to work on the game on a freelance basis.

"I'm waiting for the right time to introduce you to The Last Guardian and speak with confidence about a release date."
