It wouldn't be a major videogame industry event without a Sony executive making an offhand remark about The Last Guardian. This time, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny was on hand to make sure that we know the title is still very much a part of the Japanese giant's long term strategy.

"There are no new announcements. It’s still in development," the big-wig stated. "It’s something we’re very, very excited for, and I understand why people want to ask all the time, because it’s an exciting project from an exciting team.” We could be wrong, but we get the feeling that Michael Denny might be excited about this game.

When affable executive Shuhei Yoshida was asked wether we might see the hotly anticipated title at the Tokyo Game Show next month, his response was an emphatic no. He was also predictably reticent to give out any more details about the game's release schedule. "I cannot confirm any timing because we are waiting for it be in a state where we are happy that this is the game," Yoshida said. "We have a certain time frame in our mind and the team is making great progress, but still not to the point that we can say that.”
