The Last Guardian
is now the modern interpretation of the classic Monty Python sketch
, popping up every so often to scream, "I'm not dead yet!" The latest moment comes from former Sony employee
and The Last Guardian
designer Fumito Ueda, who stated in a post today that the project is still alive.
"While it's been a long time coming, The Last Guardian
remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team," said Ueda. "I should also mention that details regarding The Last Guardian's release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement."
Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida noted last August
"the team is still working on [The Last Guardian
] very hard." Ueda's timing is curious given the general expectation that Sony will announce the PS4 next week
. With any luck, we won't still be talking about The Last Guardian
by the time the PS5 rolls around.
