GameStop cancels The Last Guardian pre-orders, still in development according to Sony

The Last Guardian

Reports have surfaced indicating GameStop has decided to cancel pre-orders for the PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Guardian.

Customers have been receiving automated phone calls from the videogame retailer stating The Last Guardian has been canceled, and there is no trace of the upcoming title on the company’s website.

GameStop may be jumping the gun though. Sony has told IGN the game is still in development, and Patrick Seybold, senior director of corporate communications at Sony, bluntly stated, “this is not true.”

This news comes in the wake of Fumito Ueda’s recent departure from Sony. Despite his decision, the head of Team Ico did indicate he plans on completing the game.

GameStop has yet to officially comment on the matter.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
