Last GuardianSony bigwigs have confirmed that Team Ico’s much yearned for follow up to Shadow of the Colossus isn’t dead…but it ain’t exactly out next week, either.

In an interview with GameTrailers, PlayStation chief Jack Tretton made the following comments in relation to the game:

“The cool thing about our worldwide development studios is we have so many projects out there from so many different teams…Projects never ultimately go away. The Last Guardian isn’t going away but is on hiatus right now.”

Meanwhile, Sony’s Jim Ryan had this to say:

“I don’t believe it’s been cancelled…Had it been cancelled, some sort of announcement would have been made. I think the watch-word is patience.”

While Sony continue to be this tight-lipped about the current state of The Last Guardian, rumours continue to grow that the game is set to be announced as a PlayStation 4 title instead of, or as well as, a PS3 one.
