The Last Guardian NOT cancelled, GameStop apologises for mistake

Breathe people, breathe

GameStop has issued a statement apologising for wrongly informing customers that Team ICO's The Last Guardian had been cancelled.


GameStop customers initially received the Last Guardian cancelleation news via an automated call saying the Team ICO project has been canned. The product was also removed from the retailer's website and in-store systems.

Sony's senior director of corporate communications, Patrick Seybold, quickly responded by saying: "This is not true," and now GameStop has issued an official statement to Kotaku.

Here's what it had to say:

"The Last Guardian has not been cancelled by Sony as we incorrectly stated in an automated call to reservation customers. Because the game did not have a specific release date, GameStop made the decision to remove the game from our system. The Last Guardian will be reinstated for pre-order when a firm launch date is known."

Keep calm and carry on folks.
