Sad news for those ICO and Shadow of the Colossus fans looking forward to playing The Last Guardian, it looks as though the project MAY have been cancelled, according to an article on playstationlifestyle.net.
News over on Trademarkia listed the Team Ico title as “ABANDONED – NO STATEMENT OF USE FILED” as of Monday, August 6th.
The game has had a rough development cycle, being under development for a number of years now and more recently, we were informed that the game was still experiencing “technical difficulties”, according to Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida in an article on Eurogamer.
However, PSLS, the site who found the initial trademark file, has since been in contact with Sony, who stated that “they don’t comment on rumor or speculation.”
We will continue to follow this story as it develops, and will let you know if anything changes (as we’re hoping things do) for this long-time in-development project.
