The Last Guardian may just be the most excruciating case of vapourware in recorded history. We saw that stunning debut trailer way back before fire was invented, and since then we've been subject to an increasingly painful series of teases. First it was suggested that the title was being moved to the PlayStation 4, and then Jack Tretton finally confirmed that the Team ICO production does in fact still exist. More recently, fan favourite Shuhei Yoshida has been talking up the game's purportedly breathtaking visuals. It's no secret that we love the Worldwide Studios president here at Push Square, but we sure do wish that he'd stop teasing us.

And as if you weren't already drowning in inconclusive reports on the much anticipated game, a recent statement from the title's director is here to give you even more false hope. When asked by Japanese website 4gamer to give a comment in regards to upcoming projects and his aspirations for 2014, director Fumito Ueda said: "As soon as possible, I think I’ll be able to give some kind of update." In other words, you can look forward to hearing about the game in 2020. What do you make of this unabashed tease? Are you still excited for The Last Guardian? Wait impatiently in the comments section below.
