様々な創作の可能性を模索したいという動機から、少し前に(株)ソニー・コンピュータエンタテインメント (以下SCE) ジャパンスタジオを退社いたしました。

お待たせしております『人喰いの大鷲トリコ』ですが、現在 も引き続き作品が目指す方向を提示するポジションに就いており、優秀なスタッフとともに制作を進めております。


今後は、引き続き 『人喰いの大鷲トリコ』の制作と、特定の枠にこだわらない新たな創作の可能性に向け邁進してゆく所存です。

As some of you may have heard, I left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio some time ago to pursue my creative passions. Nevertheless, I continue working on THE LAST GUARDIAN as a freelance contributor.

While it’s been a long time coming, THE LAST GUARDIAN remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team.

I should also mention that details regarding THE LAST GUARDIAN's release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.

Moving forward, it is my intent to continue my involvement with THE LAST GUARDIAN project, as well as pursue new creative projects with a fresh perspective. As I rekindle my passions as a creator, I look forward to seeing where it will take me, and I deeply appreciate your support during this transition.

Seems this is a response to a lot of frustrated people asking him about when the hell the game is being released.
Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.
Would be good if they actually made an official announcement. I think Sony, especially Shuhei Yoshida, really need to step up to the plate and give us a timeframe when it's expected to be completed.
Yeah sounds like pre-emptive damage control. "Sony's decision, don't blame me!"

Cmoooooon Feb 20th.

Either way, I don't think he'd send out this message if an announcement of any sort wasn't imminent.

Pie and Beans

Look for me on the local news, I'll be the guy arrested for trying to burn down a Nintendo exec's house.
Think your days as a 'creator' may be numbered, Ueda. Maybe you'll find a better role as a designer on someone elses well-planned projects, but running your own ship again after this is either going to be through nostalgic charity Kickstarters or true desperado pubs.

PS4 seems likely now. No benefit to it being PS3 really at all, game was never gonna sell gangbusters, its a status symbol and thats what new consoles delight in.
PS4 game. C'mon. Easily

Actually the only other option is that maybe it's a cross-gen title now with the PS4 version enjoying some enhancements over the PS3 version.

Either they sell PS4's with making it exclusive to PS4 or they try and recoup the financial burden of the game by making it cross-gen.
