Sony Computer Entertainment has declined to reveal new gameplay footage for its long-delayed project, The Last Guardian.
Industry insiders had expected the title to make its first in-game appearance at Sony's E3 press conference last night.
The game has undergone a torturous development process at Sony Japan, now stretching to at least four years, which has resulted in creative head Fumito Ueda resigning from Sony.
Ueda is believed to still be working on the project, though as a consultant. At the start of 2011 he said the game was due for release by the end of the year. The lack of new gameplay would suggest the project has changed direction.
A Sony spokesperson was unavailable for comment at the time of going to press.
