Not surprising, but I'm glad the game is still in the works for those eagerly awaiting its release.

Can't spell Ignorance without IGN, I suppose.

Come on, E3.
BallsEye  +   54d ago
They better say release date is this month. I dont't want to see another trailer and then wait again 5 years.
alexkoepp  +   54d ago
Should be cancelled, giant bird monster game? Lame
Phatty  +   54d ago
If it doesn't show up at E3 it will be the last time I give a crap about it...

Lol, alex. Guess you missed out on ICO and shadow of the Colossus...

Oh, it's alex, what am I saying, you never have it a chance because it's PlayStation exclusive.

You have to love this tweet by Neil Druckmann showing IGN's sources:

Not cancelled eh? i will wait for June 9th to know for sure
The game has been in development hell for long time.
MrSec84  +   54d ago
Sony may wait until TGS this year to re-announce, because Team Ico are a part of Sony Japan, although given that E3 is probably the biggest event of the year in gaming they probably will bring it back there.

If it's not shown I still wouldn't count on it being a canceled title, not until Sony says themselves that is definitely not coming.
thorstein  +   54d ago
Consider that it was to be PS3 then, during development it switches to PS4. To do it right, I think the timetable makes a ton of sense.

Now...Agent, on the other hand, needs to show something.
No_Limit  +   54d ago
Thank god the IGN news was a fake. Hope we get to see this game at E3, hopefully now ported to PS4 and not PS3.
colonel179  +   54d ago
The problem with IGN is that they report on these speculative rumors as facts. If you saw the story in other site, it would clearly state that is a rumor, but as you can see in the headline, they wanted people to believe it as true.
truefan1  +   54d ago
Rohde should have just ignored it and let everyone think it was fake, I mean E3 is tomorrow. That would have made a possible E3 reveal that much better. Now everyone will expect an E3 reveal since he said it was not cancelled.

True it would make IGN look that much more pathetic. Damn really wish they did that. I mean IGN still have their headline as saying it's canned even after the update. Truly a shitty site showing their true colours.

torchic  +   54d ago
maybe that's a hint that it won't be at E3? the fact that Rhode was willing to say it's not cancelled a day before E3 who knows... Sony will probably show Project Beast as their Japan Studios representative game and save The Last Guardian for TGS. maybe Final Fantasy XV will be at the Sony stage as well

Final Fantasy 15 won't be on stage. Neither will KH3
andibandit  +   54d ago
Yes that wouldve made sense, im guessing hes saying it now because they sadly dont have any stuff for e3.

The Last Guardian is Not Canceled

Yes! We know that!

Xbox trolls went crazy trying to claim ownage, bet they feel stupid now.
jebabcock  +   54d ago
In all fairness. The game has been in development forever. There is plenty enough fodder there for anyone who isn't a fan of Sony to criticize regardless of whether it is or isn't cancelled. The budget on it must also be fairly massive at this point if it has been in active development this whole time...

As much as I gripe at MS about slapping things out there like milo just to appease crowds.. Sony is just as guilty with this. The Last Guardian was supposed to showcase the PS3's potential and it completely missed the boat on that. Hopefully they can upgrade it and put it on the PS4. I'd still be interested in it if they did that but im honestly not as hyped about it anymore. Sony really dropped the ball with this title regardless of how things pan out.

Yep like I thought it would happen it's just canned for PS3, coming as a PS4 exclusive in 2015 :)
andibandit  +   54d ago
Yes its confirmed for PS2015
dmitrijs88  +   54d ago
You cant cancel what haven't been started /s.
On a serious note, we need some proof to support our hopes, some screenshots or a new video.
Hopefully we get new info at upcoming E3.
showtimefolks  +   54d ago
yeh thank you ign for proving once again your site is all about trying to get m,ore hits through your own created controversy
otherZinc  +   53d ago
Lol! This series was never a system seller! 4 people like this series.

If this pos is still in development, that explains why Moodys Industrial Manual and Standard & Poors Downgraded SONY stock to Junk Status.
starchild  +   53d ago
I was pretty sure it hadn't been cancelled because Sony had said several times that it was still being developed, but it's nice to get another confirmation. I hope we see it at E3.
coyote_hunter  +   53d ago
agreed. Been waiting this long for info, so a bit longer won't hurt.
Majin-vegeta  +   54d ago
Lol I knew it.People went bat crazy.They probablY canned the PS3 version and moved it onto PS4.Just like ICO was to come out on PS1 but came out on PS2.
sckipt  +   54d ago

Screw you trolls
GamersHeaven  +   54d ago
Gardenia  +   54d ago
Well of course it isn't. It is one of Sony's most anticipated exclusives. It would be a bad move to drop that
dboi787  +   54d ago
So excited! I literally went from sadness to pure excitement. Gotta love E3 week
sckipt  +   54d ago
Its going to be shown at E3 and amaze everyone
Xbot1214  +   54d ago
E3 2015 tehe..
mushroomwig  +   54d ago
Phew, my heart can start again.
Majin-vegeta  +   54d ago
I got you :P

OT:Good news everybody
Kayant  +   54d ago
That reply pwnage I feel it quite funny IGN trying to push it as like it was official news. The hits they got from this. Well I guess it worked for them. Such a misleading site sometimes.

Edit -

And they still haven't updated the story yet Loooool that what a shitty site.

1st title: The Last Guardian is Cancelled
2nd title: The Last Guardian MAY be cancelled
3rd title The Last Guardian May be no more

All within a few hours. IGN is doubling down and going full derp on us.
0P-Tigrex  +   54d ago
Never go full derp.
Prime157  +   54d ago
Full derp?
What the HELL was that?!

They've gone to plaid!
Riderz1337  +   54d ago
Frikking IGN gave me a heart attack.
thaimasker  +   54d ago
This makes me kinda think that it won't be at E3...I mean its only 1 day away and wouldn't they want the re-reveal to be sorta a surprise... although early denial was prob for the best tho and they have been working it up to be doing fine in development for the past year now.
Crossbones  +   54d ago
I told y'all it was fake.

iXenon  +   54d ago
I think it's amazing that people were so invested in this rumor. We've only seen one trailer for the game and it showed no gameplay. All we know is that it's about a boy and his bird. And STILL people were sad and in denial.

Team ICO, most powerful developer in gaming?
IRetrouk  +   54d ago
It just goes to show how much of an impact ico and sotc really had on gamers, we have seen nothing of this game but people still want it, I personally cant wait for this game, ico and sotc are 2 of my top 5 games ever so another game like those is very exciting to me, im praying its on ps4 for the extra wow factor.
SolidDuck  +   54d ago
If it's not fake and they were going to show it at e3 they should of waited.

Inception  +   54d ago
There's tons of reason why sony will not cancelled TLG, especially when they already invested a lot of money to produced the game this past years. That's why i only laughed when IGNorant report that the game been cancelled.
dddooozzz9  +   54d ago
It makes me that I can't believe IGN.....
jonboi24  +   54d ago
Sony shouldn't have said anything and at there conference be like "and one more thing... ". Boom, Last Guardian coming to PS4 holiday 2014.
thorstein  +   54d ago
Or... it's available in stores right now.
TheRedButterfly  +   54d ago
Yeah I'll believe that when I can walk into GameStop and buy it. Im tired of this crap. 7 years is long enough.
Spotie  +   54d ago
Looking at your comments on the subject, you desperately wanted this to be true, so it's no surprise you don't believe it. When the game DOES come out, it won't matter to you, because you don't actually have an interest in it.
SuicideKing  +   54d ago
I have to agree with you, so sick of hearing about this game. I forget about it then rumours pop up around this time of year, then nothing. Seriously at this point no way the game could live up to expectations.
dadz  +   54d ago
God damn those silly click-bait articles...they couldn't even put "rumor" or something along those lines in the title?
animegamingnerd  +   54d ago
all in favor of banning IGN from this site?
CrowbaitBob  +   54d ago
Wow really? You can hate on IGN all you want but 99% of what passes for "news" on this site is nothing more than some random gamer's personal blog post.
Relientk77  +   54d ago
That's good, glad they clarified this
Syakinta  +   54d ago
Oh Sony, give us the damn game or ****
SpiralTear  +   54d ago
Geez, IGN, fact-check your articles. I know you want to break the news first, but things go much smoother when you actually get legitimate information instead of some dumb rumor.

Strike two IGN! First was the Amy Henning "throw out" from Naughty Dog which both Naughty Dog Presidents called you out angrily on your bullshit reporting and now this. Sony should be rightfully pissed at you right now not to mention the gaming community.
LightDiego  +   54d ago
That's why the majority of game journalists are a joke.
The Last Guardian it's the most anticipated game for me, i was worried for a moment.
jmac53  +   54d ago
It's an insult to real journalists that people who write about games are given that name.
CrowbaitBob  +   54d ago
I don't believe real journalism exists anymore. In recent history information has become a commodity that is mass produced rather than discovered.
silkrevolver  +   54d ago
Fucking IGN.
First stirring up nothing with Naughty Dog, now this.
They need a crash course in professionalism.
Fringe_Agent13  +   54d ago
IGN smh
ginganinja  +   54d ago
If they'd got something ready for E3 for TLG, then they should have stayed quiet. Then someone could have come on and said, 'Look guys, we know you were really looking forward to 'The Last Guardian' but we've had one or two issues and I'm afraid to say it's been cancel... wwwhhhaaatt!' as a new trailer starts playing and drowns him out.
