Sony's much-anticipated The Last Guardian
was not shown during Sony's E3 press conference earlier this week due to "technical difficulties," Sony Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida has said.
Talking to Eurogamer, Yoshida explained
, "The team is back in Tokyo working hard, and there are some technical difficulties that the team is focused on right now. That's why we don't have an update."
When asked whether the game will definitely be released at some point for PlayStation 3, he responded, "When we have confidence in saying that, we will talk about it. But today, we are working through some engineering effort."
This is the latest hiccup in a string of delays, staff changes and publicity mishaps for the game. Last year Sony said that it was delaying the title
, while retailer GameStop mistakenly told its customers that the game was cancelled
However, multiple Sony studios are now working
to get the project out the door.
