Much to gamers’ chagrin, it was reported that The Last Guardian has been put ‘on hiatus’. However according to Sony’s worldwide studios head, Shuhei Yoshida, the game is still in active development.
He explains, “That hiatus term — I’m not a native English speaking person but that’s misleading,” He further added, “The game is in active development.[Lead designer Fumito] Ueda san shared updates a few months ago. Nothing has changed. My answer is, ‘Yes, the game is in active development.’ It’s not hiatus at all. But we are not ready to reintroduce it. When we are ready, we will do that. Please wait”
These comments are in the wake of an interview from Sony Computer Entertainment America president Jack Tretton to Spike, where he told them that the game was “on hiatus.”
