    ICO, Shadow of the Colossus Producer Leaves Sony

    May be just like Molyneux leaving Microsoft, not enough creative allowance

    Ico, Shadow of the Colossus producer leaves Sony
    Plans for the future still undecided, says Kaido.

    by Sal Romano [@salromano] at 12:49 PM EDT, August 27, 2012 .



    Kenji Kaido (pictured left), producer of Shadow of the Colossus and Ico, has left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, he has announced on Twitter.

    Kaido was also lead game designer and associate producer on Ape Escape.

    His plans for the future are still undecided, though he will continue on with his summer vacation.

    Huge thanks to my awesome friend Finalreaper for the sig!!

    That was Fumito Ueda, creator of Last Guardian.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they closed the Team Ico division of SCE's Japan Studio as there is nothing but bad news concerning The Last Guardian.

    Well they've been $#@!ing around for ages. Sony should close Japan and buy Quantic Dream. QD will be able to supply the platform with an untouched genre and specialist knowledge of the platform.

    If things weren't bleak before. Man, Sony is probably being a d**khead. Guy: We're working hard and we're gonna get this out soon. Sony: How long will it be? Guy: About another year sadly Sony: WTF , man!!!! I got fans all up my a$$ asking for this game and i can't tell coming soon or anything. Guy: F u, Sony, i quit *Hangs up! jkjkjk

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Any scenario seems likely right now. I suppose not keeping my hopes up has been the right thing to do. <____<

    Why would Sony need to close Japan Studio? The issue lies with Team Ico. Japan Studio are responsible for other titles like Tokyo Jungle, Soul Sacrifice, Rain and Puppeteer. They've also worked on the Siren games with Project Siren.

    Yeah, that is the most logical thing. I'm just waiting a announcement about what's going. It's kinda sad Sony and there relationship has gotten like this.

    I can see Santa Monica saving the day on this title. They are Sony's most dynamic studio and can surely bring the game home.

    Hm. Kinda hard to ignore the writing on the wall. Sounds like The Last Guardian is vaporware.

    You must still be joking. No one heard anything on Duke Nukem Forever for 8 years before 3D Realms teased the game again. The Last Guardian is 4-years old, considering we first heard about it in 2008 and it was unveiled a year later. However, we haven't seen it in action since TGS 2010 and we know it was because they ran into some technical issues.

    agreed!Yeah, i still believe it's coming out. It'll be at TGS 2012 and if i'm wrong oh well.
