Aaand that's this month's The Last Guardian delay: it's out December now

Maybe waiting for The Last Guardian (opens in new tab) to come out is the game at this point? The new release date is now December, a shift from the previous October 25. 

In a statement (opens in new tab) Shuhei Yoshida said the game had encountered "more bugs than anticipated" with the release pushed back to deal with those issues. 

Here's the full statment: 

"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. 

The Last Guardian will launch on December 6, 2016.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.

Our development continues to push itself to the fullest and we look forward to revealing new content toward launch."

After years of delays another couple of months isn't going to make that much difference. I really would love this game to be good but after all this time, work, and slips you have to wonder...
