Sony have confirmed a delay for The Last Guardian as well as ICO and Shadow of the Colossus: The Collection. The Last Guardian was previously due for release towards the end of the year, now we’ll have to wait until 2012. Below is some words from Fumito Ueda (director and game designer) on the European PlayStation Blog:

“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.”

Sony will announce launch details at a later date.
