Rumour: The Last Guardian coming to PS4

1 min read


There are some long-anticipated games that get the collective gaming audience to perk up when they hear their names. Years ago, one was Duke Nukem Forever. Since then, Half-Life 3 has been a big one. And now we have a fresh mention of another one: The Last Guardian.

We first heard mention of Team Ico’s follow-up to the legendary Shadow of the Colossus at E3 2009. At the time, it was planned for a PlayStation 3 release in 2011, having been in development since 2007. Since then, the game has been hit with numerous delays, and very little detail has leaked out. Conflicting status reports were heard last June, and the dreaded “vaporware” began to find its way to the lips of disappointed gamers everywhere.

There may be reason for excitement, as the name of The Last Guardian has surfaced once again. Video game industry insider Ahsan Rasheed had a lot to say on his Twitter account yesterday, including this juicy set of tweets:

Things to look forward to-
1. Drive Club updated footage
2 PS4 VR + SSM New IP
3. UC 4
4. Guerilla new IP
5. UC4
6. The Last Guardian

The future for PS4 🙂 oh so good.

And yes, UC4 was posted twice on purpose.

That’s a lot of rumours smashed into a few tweets, but right down there at the bottom is the name of Team Ico’s sought-after title, apparently as something to look forward to on the PlayStation 4. Beyond that, we know that Driveclub is coming, so that’s not quite as shocking. But the remainder of the rundown includes new IPs from Sony Santa Monica and Guerrilla Games, as well as Uncharted 4, which is apparently intentionally mentioned twice.

Absolutely no time table was hinted at in the series of tweets, so this is a whole lot of teasing. But if these turn out to be true, then PlayStation 4 owners have quite a lot to be excited about.

    well i think we all assumed this.
    No point in releasing an expensive to produce AAA game on the old platform. May very well be that part of the delay was caused by using a new engine that will look good on PS4.

    More gaming than ever, SONY and the illustrious PS4! And it sold over 5 million units. Stunning really. We are HUMBLED by your greatness SONY.

    Forget about it & move on. Games this long in development rarely turn out well because things have changed so much from when they started.

      with games like this, they need to distance themselves from it being a sequel. Because many of the people who might buy this, would not have played the PS2 titles.

      Many people skip games when they see a number at the end because they feel they’ve missed something.

      naturally, with The Last Guardian, it sounds like a new IP.

      Agreed. Too long in the ‘thinking’ it will never see the light of day, much like me on a typical Saturday.

        Don’t know anything about it.

          They asked for Kickstarer funding like 5/6 years ago for a product that now looks completely different. A lot of people (Gavin included) raged as it isn’t really fair to take money from people who expect one thing, but then are delivered something quite different (but apparently rather damn awesome).

            Well that’s true, it isn’t fair – because there may have been people who would have chosen not to back the project. You pledge based on the pitch of what the final product will be.

            I’d be pissed if Pillars of Eternity turns out being an action-RPG like Diablo as opposed to a classic Infinity engine game. That it may be a good action-RPG would only mitigate that to a certain point.

    This game has been in development so long Duke Nukem will probably make a cameo appearance

    It will never come out. It can’t, it’s been built up so much that even Felix Baumgartner would suffer vertigo. Too late, and very sad 🙁

    Oh well, I suppose it is time to stop eating and start saving for a PS4.
