Fumito Ueda Works on Secret Project, Apologizes for Last Guardian Delay
posted on by Egan Loo
Game developer Fumito Ueda told the Edge magazine that he is still working on "The Last Guardian and the rest is secret." When asked about his last eight years, he said that he feels "terribly sorry that for various reasons I have kept my audience waiting for such a long time."
He explained that he decided to leave Sony Computer Entertainment and go freelance in 2011 "because I felt a sense of crisis within myself about a lot of things. It's hard to [say exactly what], but in terms of my own growth and career and so on." He confirmed that he often still works at SCE's Shinagawa office in Tokyo. When asked about Sony's reaction to his departure, he said, "It was not easy, but I can't go into the details just yet. It will be good to be able to discuss it along with a post-mortem of The Last Guardian someday."
Ueda said in February that he still has creative supervision over The Last Guardian project. Sony Worldwide Studios president Shūhei Yoshida said in June that the game is still in active development.
