The Last Guardian Development Being Handled by PS4 Lead Architect Mark Cerny


Following the report from UK newspaper, The Guardian revealed that Team ICO’s The Last Guardian could be coming at E3 2015, Just Add Water head Stewart Gilray, during the PS Nation podcast, suggested that Mark Cerny could be working to finish it.

Gilray sugested:

“a certain somebody’s software team” is handling development,

“And that certain somebody is the guy who helped out with the architecture of Vita and PS4. I’m lead to believe his team is now running Last Guardian to finish.”

The Last Guardian Development Being Handled by PS4 Lead Architect Mark Cerny

Mark Cerny was the lead architect for the PS4 and the PSVita, headed up development on Knack and worked with Naughty Dog on Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter and more. Hopefully we will see and learn more about The last Guardian during Sony's E3 2015 Press Conference, which will be held at 6:30 PM PDT on Monday, June 15. The event itself will take place at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles.

Sony did not reveal any more details, but there will surely be a ton of PlayStation announcements and some very exciting surprises. Naughty Dog is currently going “all hands on deck” on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, as they are probably preparing for a strong E3 2015 showing, to provide fans eagerly waiting to get a taste of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 game after the disappointing news of its delay.

Guerilla's open world RPG, Horizon, is probably going to be revealed with hopefully some beautiful gameplay, and we might get a teaser of Sucker Punch' new title. We can hope for a PS4 God of War announcement as well.

Insomniac will give us a glimpse of the Ratchet & Clank reboot title for the PS4, which is a re-imagining of the franchise set to release alongside the movie in 2016. We will likely get a better look at Project Morpheus, along with a few VR optimised titles, and probably a release date for the device.

The new title from Quantic Dream should most definitely be revealed, which will surely be something to look forward to, as their Dark Sorcerer demo at E3 2013 was truly something spectacular and demonstrated the potential of the PlayStation 4 hardware in the capable hands of the Quantic Dream studio, led by the visionary David Cage.

We will bring you any new information on The Last Guardian, Sony and E3 2015 as soon as it becomes available.
