ICO/Shadow of Colossus Collection and The Last Guardian to be Delayed |

SCEE confirmed that the the ICO/Shadow of Colossus Collection is to be delayed from its original release date of Spring 2011 as well as The Last Guardian which was originally set for Holiday/Winter 2011.

Fumito Ueda had this to say:

I announced at last year’s Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011.

However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.

All the members of my production team are working together at a fast pace to develop and release the game in First Party Studio quality.

I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for “The Last Guardian” for so long, but I beg for your patience. I will also announce the new release timing at a later time.

While this is indeed sad news, the PS3 has a treasure trove of games coming out this year and I wouldn’t be surprised if that actually had something to do with it. So keep this in mind and try not to take it as badly as “this” guy.

  • I’m not exactly surprised, since there are so many other huge games coming out in the fall. and if they want to delay the game to make it better, let them.

    delays are a good thing in this case.

  • Beats trying to rush everything out the door barely finished and tested.

    But this game certainly is testing everyones patience.

    Today is 4/20 not April fools
    But happy holidays anyways

  • Delays are always fine, but I’d say release it in 2012, there are to many exclusives this year, some people will ignore some games for others. But then again not many holiday releases so this seems to be good.

    Ok i can see why they would delay TLG but why delay the Team Ico collection. I cant wait to play SotC. Hands down the best game on ps2. The scale alone of that game is just epic. Some of the best boss fights ive seen in a very long time and the music, pure genious.

    The want the Collection to come out at at a set time before the new game, to keep people’s interest…

    I’m actually glad.. delays usually mean better games.

  • Seeing as shadow of the colossus has 720p textures already this makes no sense other then marketing.

  • Royalty32

    i dnt get it. So are they delaying TLG for an early 2012 release and pushing the Team Ico collection to the holiday season. Im confused?????

  • So the HD collection will release in holiday 2011 and the game will go to Q2 2012 then? At least that’s what I think could happen. Oh well, more time to finish my backlog!

  • ahh boo was looking forward to this oh well

  • Sucks to hear, though I haven’t been super excited about it, so I don’t mind the delay. There is so much coming out in the mean time to hold me over.

  • Jonaskin

    That sucks, I was hoping to pick up the collection soon as I’ve never played either of them.

  • This game hasn’t caught my interest yet, much like Portal 2.

  • I eagerly await the release of these games!
