GameStop Says ‘The Last Guardian’ Is Cancelled, Sony Says No. WHO IS TRUE?!

Fumito Ueda left Sony and everyone was all “OMFG, fuck what about The Last Guardian?!” Sony was all “Don’t worry, don’t worry, fools!” I believed them! I trusted them!  Now GameStop is saying the game is cancelled. Jesus Lord what’s going on?


Customers of the world’s largest dedicated video game retailer were shocked today when an automated phone call went out declaring the cancellation of Team Ico’s eagerly-anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusiveThe Last Guardian. Say it isn’t so, Sony!

While it is true that  The Last Guardian  creator Fumito Ueda recently  vacated his position  at the head of Sony’s Team Ico, we’ve been told on  several occasions  that the move would in no way affect the development of the PlayStation 3 boy and his giant bird-thing game.

Yet now GameStop is telling customers the game has been cancelled. Indeed the game has been removed from the company’s online website, and calls to two retail locations indicate it’s no longer in their point-of-sale system either. Does GameStop know something we don’t? Is the game canceled?

According to Sony’s senior director of corporate communications, Patrick Seybold, the cancelation is not a real thing. “This is not true.” It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

So what gives, GameStop? I’ve reached out to the retailer for comment, and will update this post as soon as I receive a response. Until then,  The Last Guardian  is still a going concern; Sony says so.

Update:  Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida is also denying the game’s cancellation  via his Twitter account.

Please don’t be true, I’ve been waiting for this sheezy forever.
