The Last Guardian Finally Cancelled?

Two different Russian journalists point out an ongoing rumor that The Last Guardian might have been cancelled for good.

Update:

IGN reported the very same rumor from their Russian sources, however Sony's Scott Rohde denied it on Twitter.

The story has been updated to reflect this.

Fake

Amazon.com lists The Last Guardian for PS3

http://metro.co.uk/2014/06/...

Alexious840d ago

Amazon.com has listed it for "centuries" and it lists many other games which aren't even close to being out for sure.

That confirms nothing.

JackVagina840d ago

Amazon stopped taking pre-orders for TLG ages ago but a few days ago they re-opened the pre orders.

Not saying it means anything, just pointing out what prodigy should have.

ZodTheRipper840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

Two russian ex-journalists ...yeah sure. But it makes sense in the overall picture, this statement came from Scott Rohde in March:

"When asked whether it was still a PlayStation 3 game or if it’s migrated to PlayStation 4, Rohde said that he’s “not going to announce what platform it’s coming on, who’s working on it, who’s involved. But that is still a title that’s absolutely in the mix at Worldwide Studios. That’s the most you’re gonna get.”

For me, it kinda makes sense... these guys saw the PS3 version being cancelled. Sony probably sent a mail to retailers that they should remove the PS3 version from their listings. Meanwhile it has been hinted more than once that TLG is being "re-engineered" for PS4 so I'd say that Sony is going to re-introduce the PS4 version when it's ready - hopefully at E3, maybe only at TGS. But all in all I believe that it's coming.

@Jack Thanks for that info. This news had me nearly scared to death, but knowing that they're taking preorders again gives me some relief. If they canned this game I'd be all sorts of sad.

morganfell840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

Its a bs article. Sony is funding the development now. I'll take this:

BallsEye840d ago

Well at this point I don't even wanna see any trailer. Been too long already. Launch the damn thing or cancel it for good! Tired of seeing trailers of same games every year.

spacecat5050840d ago

8 years in development? I wouldn't expect much of anything from this gamw.

crxss840d ago

@prodigy LOL that has to be one of the best responses of 2014. It's hilarious cause you're probably serious with your comment and think that amazon is the answer for everything

No_Limit840d ago

@Morganfell,

Those two Kotaku articles are from last year so things could have change. Games get canceled all the time just like the recent Santa Monica new IP. I don't think it is true but your link is old and doesn't disproved this recent rumor.

Legendary-Status840d ago

lol this is so fake..Sony would came out and said something...but cant cause E3 is like a day apart from now..grain of salt

Pogmathoin840d ago

Did Kotaku not recently take a beating because anything from this site is garbage?? Oh, only when it suits your argument I guess...... Usual trolling....

That doesn't mean anything.

b163o1840d ago

Exactly! I really could care less now.

RedSoakedSponge840d ago

its "couldn't care less" ffs. everyone who says that pisses me off so much now.

abc1233840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

Fake: rumour from a no name site based on tweets from two random Russian ex-journalists. Come on now, how many BS rumours will it take for people to stop falling for this.

randomass171840d ago

Freaking headline had me worried though. Sensationalist stuff like this really shouldn't be approved. :/

360ICE840d ago

@randomass171

Absolutely agree. Just wish people here would think the same when it's fake good news too. Like that ridiculous Nintendo E3 list.

nypifisel840d ago

It's kinda ridiculous, IGN came out and said it was official, only for Sony to mock them and debunk it.

ritsuka666840d ago

https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW50...

Put another game in this list too: Final fantasy Versus ( FFXV)

Gamingcapacity840d ago

I'm still waiting for Agent!

spunnups840d ago

FF Versus and Agent I completely forgot about and I remember how hyped everyone was when they were announced at....damn how many E3's ago was that!?...seems like forever ago. I'm guessing, and hoping, all 3 are being moved to the next gen consoles. Although with Agent, I don't remember ever seeing gameplay.....

If I had to choose just one to release at some point, I hope it's the Last Guardian, based on how amazing Shadow of the Colossus and Ico were, it'd be a shame if this project was never completed.

Fumito Ueda and Team Ico possess a ton of talent and I'd be shocked if the Last Guardian never saw the light of day.

linkenski840d ago

Bubble down for "unintelligent" Come on N4G, where is it!?

stavrami-mk2840d ago

Bubble up or down works better when you don't Tell the world about it trying to convince other ppl to join your side..... You sir are a stirrer

showtimefolks840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

no way it will come out and it will be at E3 2014. Don't believe any rumors days before E3. its almost here so just wait and see

MechaGear840d ago

would have lol'd. others did before me.

bigfish840d ago

aww cant be asked with this game anymore.....

Pabsmets840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

Oh amazon list the game for PS3? ohhh then yeah for sure, you're right. yeah for sure, you got it, alright. You did it. Good point. You're doing it. Oh man. congrats.

starchild840d ago

I hope it hasn't been cancelled. :(

Blasphemy840d ago

it wouldn't surprise me that this game is vaporware there hasn't been a single thing about this game since it was first announced

Wintersun616839d ago

There's been a few screenshots and at least one video after the announcement.

Syntax-Error840d ago

This game was the hype when PS3 first came out and now PS3 is old news. It missed an entire generation. I wonder if we will see it for this new generation considering they have the technology and hardware to achieve their vision

BinaryMind840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

This is getting pretty annoying. People speculate every year because Last Guardian doesn't make an appearance at E3 that it must be cancelled. And every time a Sony exec has to confirm it is still happening. Hopefully they don't ask a Japanese exec again and have something lost in translation.

Ibetruth840d ago

Anybody new to the article instead of reading all the comments know that the game has official be cancelled there's a report on ign

BinaryMind840d ago

Yeah, and IGN clearly jumped the gun. Sony has confirmed it's not cancelled.

Eonjay839d ago

Yup Prodigy X was right. Its fake.

TimeSkipLuffy840d ago

maybe for PS3 but will get a release on PS4 then

MrSwankSinatra840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

Well if it is canceled then Sony should let it be known.

Irishguy95840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

Stick a 'cancelled rumor' out on net..blow everyone away in Conference ;)

Haha i'm too optimistic, FFXV might not even be here. I should know from the last 7 years to expect dissapointment but **** it

DigitalRaptor840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

It's just like how Media Molecule and Guerrilla just happened to announce within a couple of days, that neither of them would be appearing at E3. Why would Sony let their first party studios announce that and kill hype just a few days before E3 if it was true?

THAT looks like a suspicious bait and switch tactic to me, if I ever saw one.

randomass171840d ago

This site better hope that Sony doesn't announce the game for a PS4 release with new gameplay footage.

mt840d ago

Hope, Hope.
if no news about the last Guardian comes this E3 , then I say pack your things boys. there will be no TLG anymore.

The Meerkat840d ago

Shame if true.

It looks weird. And weird is going to be default genre this generation.

I've had enough of generic games.

Festano840d ago (Edited 840d ago )

This is bad news, I hope it comes out at least for Ps4, even if the rumor suggests that there will be.
