The Last Guardian, ICO / Shadow of the Collossus: PS3 Release Date Delays

By Alan Ng - Apr 20, 2011

We have some bad news for PS3 owners now, as Sony has just confirmed that the highly anticipated The Last Guardian game has been delayed. Not only that, but the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection titles have also been delayed as well. All of which were expected to release at some point this year.

Fumito Ueda, the director for the game revealed the news in a post over on the official EU PlayStation Blog. He revealed that the team need more development time on the game in order to ensure that gamers receive a game which is full of ‘quality content’. Here is the official word from Ueda:

”To provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfil First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.”

He went on to give his apologies for delaying the game to those that have been waiting patiently for The Last Guardian to release. However, he didn’t give a new period for when the game will be out, instead stating that he’ll announce this at a ‘later period’.

If that wasn’t bad enough for PS3 owners, we can also confirm that the ICO / Shadow of the Collossus HD remakes have also been delayed by Fumito Ueda and the team. Again, no word on when the game will be out, but we’re guessing it will now be pushed into a 2012 release.

What are your thoughts on this? It’s pretty disappointing since the games were looking amazing during their Tokyo Game Show reveal. How many of you were hoping to play the game this year?

    I see this as a good thing. There's already so many good games that came out and are coming out for the ps3 this year many people are trying to decide which ones to get. Good games for the ps3 this year is not a problem. Most people would rather they get it right rather than push it out with bugs or whatever anyway. This only means something good to add to the list for 2012 since 2011 has plenty.
