Apparently, The Last Guardian
creative lead and Team Ico head Fumito Ueda has quit Sony and is working on Team Ico's latest project as a freelancer. Eurogamer
is reporting as much, saying that Ueda's departure from the team has accentuated the ever-growing delay of the project's launch.
The Last Guardian
was pushed out
of a "holiday 2011" release window earlier this year, and the development team were said to be moving offices
this past summer, getting up close and personal with SCE's main HQ. Requests to Sony for comment have gone unreturned as of publishing.
A Sony rep told Joystiq, "Sony doesn't comment on rumors or speculation."
