    Bad news for fans of critical hits ICO and SOTC – Sony has left the The Last Guardian trademark to become “dead” and “abandoned”.

    PSLS has discovered that over on United States Patent and Trademark Office, the trademark for The Last Guardian is listed as “(ABANDONED)” with the “Live/Dead Indicator” stating that it’s “DEAD”. Trademarkia states “Abandonment Notice! On Monday, August 6, 2012, status on the THE LAST GUARDIAN trademark changed to ABANDONED – NO STATEMENT OF USE FILED.” as well as “Status Update! On Monday, August 6, 2012, status on the THE LAST GUARDIAN trademark changed to ABANDONED – NO STATEMENT OF USE FILED.”

    What this means exactly is unclear – the game has gone through development turmoil seeing numerous delays and missing out E3 after E3, as well as suffering staff departures and Ueda becoming a freelancer. But Sony Santa Monica was brought in to try to fix a game-breaking problem and finally get it out this gen and Shuhei Yoshida has repeatedly stated that The Last Guardian is not dead. Whether the trademark being allowed to become dead is a sign that Sony have finally given up on the project or perhaps changed the name is unknown. PSLS has reached out to Sony for a comment and will update if they respond. Update: Sony has told us that they “don’t comment on rumors or speculation”.

    Of course, this could possibly now mean that Microsoft could buy the game rights to Artemis Fowl and The Last Guardian and completely confuse people.

    If you found out TLG was dead, how would you react? Share your sorrows in the comments below.
    Well, like Agent, I really have next to no interest left in this game. Sony doesn't even want to comment on the matter when they could easily reassure consumers.

    Not surprised. We've already seen this kind of thing with Agent, Eight Days, The Getaway and one other game who's title I forget. Once we saw nothing at E3 I knew this game was vaporware.

    Well this is not any confirmation though. In July Sony had stated that the game was still in development, but just had some technical issues.

    What they meant was, "Technically we have cancelled the game"... lol

    This does suck pretty much. I wasn't that interested in it, but I was at the least hoping to get into it.

    Doesn't mean the game is cancelled. It could mean that The Last Guardian is undergoing a name change. It also could mean that the game may not be localized in the US. We'll have to wait and see.

    EDIT:

    Also, what is the likelyhood that given how long it's taking, someone else approached Sony for the name in the US and they're letting it lapse for that reason and will just run TLG under a different name here? In Japan, SotC was 'Wanda & the Colossus'.

    $#@! THIS $#@! MAN!!! First $#@!ing FFvs13 was cancelled, now this!?

    Oh wait...




    Seriously though, 2013 HAS SO MANY GAMES coming, I don't really care if we get this or not now. Will be nice if it is still alive. I wouldn't be surprised is the chaps at Santa Monica took this game in another direction that required a name change. Well, time will tell.

    Tokyo Game show will be the last chance for this game. If we don't see anything then yeah, we can consider this project gone. Sucks too since I was looking forward to it.

    I guess it's still "in development"?

    If it ever comes out at all it will propably wind up as a PS4 title. But tbh I cant help but feel it will just eventually become officially cancelled.

    This is what they should have confirmed at least months ago, instead of giving us the usual crap.
