Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has said he “can’t promise” SCE Japan Studio and Team ICO’s long-in-development The Last Guardian will launch in 2013.

“No, sorry, I can’t say that,” Yoshida told JeuxVideo.fr when asked if the game would arrive next year.

“The last time we talked about a date for The Last Guardian, we ended up disappointing many people. But I can say that the team is working hard on the project, particularly the engine.

“It is precisely due to the teams working on the technical aspect of the game that we have nothing tangible to show you today. So now, I’m waiting for the right moment to introduce The Last Guardian, and speak with confidence of a release date.”

The Last Guardian was announced for PlayStation 3 at E3 2009.

I really have no hope of this game ever coming out.
