According towards listing on the office of patent and trademark in the united states, Sony hasn’t already renewed its trademark for the past Guardian. Rumors about?the action have already been purely conjecture and speculation during the last two years. Not a whole lot new information has surfaced since it had been announced with the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo. Right at that moment, it turned out envisioned having a 2011 release for any PlayStation 3- since then, however, the adventure has suffered many delays and complications. Many experts have in development since 2007.
The expiration of your trademark going back Guardian, however, is not to mean that this project is officially abandoned. Fumito Ueda, still an advisor for that game despite leaving his post as a full-time employee of Sony, described the ‘development’ just last December of 2014. The project could have simply been renamed through the team behind it. Also, this isn’t the first time that Sony has let a trademark for the Last Guardian expire, so the renewal within the trademark just may ‘t be up high on Sony’s priority list now. Needless to say, it may also mean that One more Guardian will not ever see the light of day, but that’s the defeatist worst-case scenario only.
The Last Guardian is a spiritual successor for the beloved works of Team Ico: Ico, which has been released on Ps2 in 2001 and where the development team got its name, additionally, the better-known Shadow from the Colossus, that’s released for PlayStation 2 in 2005. Both were re-released to your Playstation 3 slim system this season. Team Ico is recognized for their eerie?and challenging games which focus regarding atmosphere and story to be able to leave the player with shocking moral questions. The very last Guardian looked no less mournful featuring its storyline following a boy as well as a newfound giant griffin friend named Trico endeavoring to get away from the ruins of any castle. Fumito Ueda has described the story plot as “open-ended” which certainly sounds in-keeping for your game from Team Ico.
Hopefully we’ll see some news coming from Sony or Team Ico with this front soon.
