The Last Guardian to be a PS4 game, “the last time it was restarted it was moved to Orbis”
A forum post from an alleged former Sony dev suggests that The Last Guardian is now a PS4 game. The title has apparently been restarted a number of times during development and at the last do-over was moved to PlayStation 4.

The post over NeoGAF states in answer to questions about its platform:
“I don’t know, but I know it’s been in development on Orbis for a long time now. It’s platform has been questionable for nearly two years, but the last time it was restarted (it’s been restarted a number of times), it was moved to Orbis”.
A later post later says that the source, Kenny Linder, was a dev at Sony’s BigBig Studio in the UK.
The Last Gaurdian creator Fumito Ueda recently broke his silence following his departure from Sony as a full time employee to continue as a freelance contractor. In a statement on his website he said, “I continue working on The Last Guardian as a freelance contributor. While it’s been a long time coming, The Last Gaurdian remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team. I should also mention that details regarding THE LAST GUARDIAN’s release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.”
Many have taken the timing of the statement to indicate an announcement along with the rumoured PS4 reveal next week.
