Sony has announced that the upcoming HD remakes of classic titles Ico and Shadow of the Colossus for PlayStation 3 have been delayed, along with original title The Last Guardian.
Sony has announced that the upcoming HD remakes of classic titles Ico and Shadow of the Colossus for PlayStation 3 have been delayed, and will not be released this spring as originally stated. The company also revealed that The Last Guardian, Team Ico's latest project, will also miss its winter release date. In a post on the EU PlayStation blog, The Last Guardian director Fumito Ueda explained, "I announced at last year’s Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011." "However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing. All the members of my production team are working together at a fast pace to develop and release the game in First Party Studio quality." He concluded, "I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for The Last Guardian for so long, but I beg for your patience." Phil Lynch, European product manager at SCEE, noted, "SCEE can confirm that we are officially delaying the release of ICO/Shadow of the Colossus Collection and The Last Guardian from their respective launch timeframes of Spring 2011 and Holiday/Winter 2011." He explained that details regarding new release dates will be released "at a later date".
