The Last Guardian PS4 PlayStation 4 1

The Last Guardian has gone dark again. The game was re-revealed to a rapturous response at E3 2015, but it was absent at both the Tokyo Game Show and Paris Games Week. This, according to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, is nothing to worry about – the platform holder's just limiting the title's showings because it doesn't want to spoil things.

"Development is going well, but because it's about the story, we don't want to show too much," the affable executive told GameSpot. "We wanted to show that it exists, it works, it runs. It's not like we won't show anything before launch, but I think that we will try to limit what we show about the game." While disappointing, we suppose that this makes sense.

The other reason, we'd imagine, is that this game has been in development for at least eight years now, and any new footage is going to receive copious release date queries. Having said all of that, we strongly suspect that there'll be a new trailer at PlayStation Experience a little later in the year – this is a game for fans of the brand after all.
