RIME appears to be taking more than art direction inspiration from Team ICO, as the hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive was absent at Paris Games Week 2015 yet again. The game – which caused a stir all the way back in 2013 – wasn't even acknowledged during Sony's press conference this week, and many have taken that to mean bad news.

But, according to Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, there's nothing to worry about – the game's still in development. According to the affable executive, developer Tequila Works is a very small team, and so it's taking its time to get the title finished. This all seems fair enough to us, but we kind of wished that it hadn't been announced so early in that case.
