The Last Guardian was a no-show during Sony’s E3 2014 conference on Monday – as we reported it would be a few hours before the event – and Sony Computer Entertainment’s president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida has explained why.


Speaking with Eurogamer, Yoshida commented on IGN’s since-retracted report that The Last Guardian had been cancelled outright, saying, “There were a difficult couple of days before the show – I’m sure you noticed. I’m so happy it was retracted before the show happened.”

“It’s the same message!” he added, stressing that The Last Guardian remains in full development at Sony.

Yet, it didn’t appear on Sony’s stage. Yoshida explained the move, “Lots of people tweeted me they were heartbroken by that news [prior to the show]. People are going through this roller coaster of emotions, and it’s our fault for not releasing the game, yet.

“We owe a lot to those people, but we really don’t want to release piecemeal information until we can say this is The Last Guardian – so we ask you to wait.”
