Another E3, another no-show for PS3 (or PS4?) outing The Last Guardian.
Sony asserted on Monday that the game is most definitely still alive following the publication of a now redacted report claiming its cancellation. So why on earth was it not featured at Sony's press event?
"There were a difficult couple of days before the show – I'm sure you noticed," Sony Computer Entertainment's president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer of the report. "I'm so happy it was retracted before the show happened.
"Lots of people tweeted me they were heartbroken by that news [prior to the show]. People are going through this roller coaster of emotions, and it's our fault for not releasing the game, yet. We owe a lot to those people, but we really don't want to release piecemeal information until we can say this is The Last Guardian – so we ask you to wait."
Cue PS5 launch title joke.
