The Last Guardian Wasn’t Cancelled, and Then It Was, but Now It Isn’t Again
Last night IGN reported that The Last Guardian had been cancelled. IGN’s Senior Editor, Colin Moriarty, said an internal source confirmed the cancellation to IGN Russia.
However, Scott Rohde, Sony’s Head of Software Product Development, denied the story, claiming he and Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, were amused by it.

This is good news for people who have been looking forward to The Last Guardian (me). But if the game isn’t cancelled, what is its status? Sony and Team Ico have been very sparse with details, which SpawnFirst’s own Tony Chavez wrote about last week.
With E3 and Sony’s press conference coming up tomorrow, rumors about The Last Guardian have been circulating like crazy, but that’s not surprising. What would be surprising is actual news about the game. Actual, straightforward news.
