Darling readers, I’m not entirely sure how to break this news to you, but I’ll do it as gently as I can. You may need to sit down for this: we could have to wait until next year for the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD collection.
According to online retail giant Amazon.com, a new release schedule has the anticipated collection marked with a tentative â€œ2012â€ instead of April 2011. This news comes from G4, but DiedAgain.com also points out another possibility: if the HD collection has been delayed, does this mean that The Last Guardian has been pushed back as well?
There’s no official word from Sony as yet, but with Amazon.com citing a release date slip and Buy.com doing the same, it doesn’t look too promising. The Last Guardian was given a release window of â€œHolidays 2011â€ last year. That would have allowed those who haven’t played ICO or Shadow of the Colossus a chance to get through both titles before plunging into the latest from Team ICO.
This possible release date slip will likely be confirmed or denied in the coming few days, so we’ll be sure to keep you updated. Here’s hoping it’s the latter.
