Causing the Twitter explosion to end all Twitter explosions, IGN recently revealed that it received inside information suggesting that The Last Guardian had been officially cancelled. The hotly anticipated title by Team ICO has been in development for several years now, with a seemingly endless list of rumours and teases only exacerbating this unbearable wait.

In response to these claims, Scott Rohde – Sony's head of software product development – stated over Twitter that the rumours are untrue. "Shuhei Yoshida and I laughed over this rumour at dinner,' the executive said. "The Last Guardian has not been cancelled." What's more, the post was retweeted by the official PlayStation Twitter account.

The big question now is whether or not we'll be seeing the game in any concrete form over the coming week of E3. Unfortunately, we have absolutely no answers at this point. So, rather than worrying about it, this exasperated reporter is now going to go sit down with a nice mug of Horlicks in an attempt to calm his frayed nerves.
