While those looking to play The Last Guardian had to endure one heartbreak after another, another one’s here, apparently. Thankfully, it’s not going to be pushed back to 2017, but just a couple of months.

Over on the official PlayStation Blog, Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida gave a very brief update on the game, and why The Last Guardian is being delayed to December 6.

The Last Guardian development team is fast approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian a few weeks. The Last Guardian will launch on December 6, 2016.

Fumito Ueda, gen DESIGN and JAPAN Studio have a wonderful vision for The Last Guardian’s touching, emotional journey of friendship and trust, and we want to deliver the most polished experience possible for our fans who have supported us for so long. A delay is a difficult decision, particularly with this game, but we have encountered more bugs than anticipated while in the final stages of development. To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game’s creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues.

Our development continues to push itself to the fullest and we look forward to revealing new content toward launch.

We appreciate your continued support.

Don’t forget to read our hands-on impressions of The Last Guardian earlier this year. There’s also our piece on the whole story of The Last Guardian’s reveal being spoiled by PlayStation LifeStyle and the aftermath of the megaton leak.

Does this affect you at all or are you willing to wait a few more months to finally — finally — play Team ICO’s latest?
