When it was first announced, PS3-exclusive The Last
Guardian was one of our most anticipated games of 2010, then one of our most
anticipated for 2011, and now we’re really excited for it in 2012. But the
delays and the fact that we hadn’t seen the game in a long time was starting to
make us worried. And this new rumor floating around hardly comforts us, as Eurogamer reports the games director and Team Ico
leader Fumito Ueda has quit Sony.
According to the rumor, Ueda has already left Sony but has
been working to complete the Guardian in a freelance capacity. Team Ico has
been working on Guardian for years with little shown of the game in the last 12
months. The rumor continues that after Last Guardian is done, Ueda will “embark on
personal projects.” Sony hasn’t confirmed this yet, but if true, does this mean
Guardian is the final game of Team Ico?
