Team Ico Titles Delayed

Team Ico Titles Delayed

While not really unexpected, it’s sad to report that Team Ico has delayed The Last Guardian until 2012 citing “production reasons.”  Director Fumito Ueda stated on a Playstation blog post, “To provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone (the game’s) release timing.”  There’s been no word on a specific release date but a release window is to be announced soon.

The Last Guardian is the follow-up to the Playstation 2 games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.  The original two games were set to release in an HD remastered two pack for the Playstation 3 sometime this Spring but has also been pushed and is expected to release in Winter 2011.
