Sony said that The Last Guardian is still in development, and it's proved it by reviving the trademark which got abandoned earlier in the week. NeoGAF, again, spotted the platform holder's petition to reclaim the rights to the brand, which was submitted and approved yesterday. The Japanese giant told GameSpot that the abandonment was due to an administration error.

It's crazy to think that something like this can get overlooked by an organisation so big, but it sounds like the person responsible for extending the original registration left the PlayStation maker before the papers were fully filed. Still, we reckon that the company owes the members of NeoGAF a drink or two – after all, they did make the firm aware of this oversight.
