Are you pumped for The Last Guardian releasing next month? Well…. I’ve got some bad news for you.
In a Playstation Blog update posted today, Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., announced that The Last Guardian will be seeing what many are hoping is the last delay.
“The Last Guardian development team is fast approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian a few weeks,” Yoshida wrote in the post.
Originally scheduled to release October 25, 2016, The Last Guardian will now launch on December 6, 2016.
Yoshida points to final polish of the games issues as the reason for delay.
Fumito Ueda, gen DESIGN and JAPAN Studio have a wonderful vision for The Last Guardian’s touching, emotional journey of friendship and trust, and we want to deliver the most polished experience possible for our fans who have supported us for so long. A delay is a difficult decision, particularly with this game, but we have encountered more bugs than anticipated while in the final stages of development. To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game’s creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues.
