It had taken multiple years to develop The Last Guardian and following a fear that it may have been canceled, the game was finally released in December 2016. Director Fumito Ueda acknowledged that there “twists and turns” when creating the game and that it took longer than expected to make the game. Ueda released the following note to the fans via EuroGamer:
“Dear Adventurers. It’s been a long time coming, but I take great pleasure (and relief!) in knowing that The Last Guardian is in your hands. When we first began work on The Last Guardian, I intended it to take from and build on our experience working in ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, making it something akin to a greatest hits album. Unfortunately, as you know, we ran into a few twists and turns along the way, and the title took longer than anyone expected. Still, just as ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are truly unique games, so too is The Last Guardian an experience unlike any other. As you play, take the time to stop and enjoy the scenery as you follow these unlikely companions on their journey. And you definitely won’t want to miss the ending! The development team and I hope you all have a wonderful time with The Last Guardian. Nothing would make us happier.”
