Today via the PlayStation Blog it was announced that the release of The Last Guardian will be delayed. Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said the delay was due to some unexpected last minute bugs. You can read his full statement below:
The Last Guardian development team is fast approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian a few weeks. The Last Guardian will launch on December 6, 2016.
Fumito Ueda, gen DESIGN and JAPAN Studio have a wonderful vision for The Last Guardian’s touching, emotional journey of friendship and trust, and we want to deliver the most polished experience possible for our fans who have supported us for so long. A delay is a difficult decision, particularly with this game, but we have encountered more bugs than anticipated while in the final stages of development. To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game’s creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues.
Our development continues to push itself to the fullest and we look forward to revealing new content toward launch.
We appreciate your continued support.
Hopefully these extra few weeks will give them time get this one out in a very polished state, and without the need for a huge day one patch.
