Ex-Sony designer Fumito Ueda has assured that work on his long-in-the-making PS3 exclusive The Last Guardian is still in progress.
Speaking to Kotaku, Ueda said: "It's been business as usual. The only things that've really changed are the terms of my contract."
Quizzed on how far along the game is, Ueda said: "I can't really comment on the details."
The respected designer announced his departure from Sony late last year, but committed to finishing his Last Guardian duties on a contractual basis.
Back in February, Worldwide studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed Sony's drafted in a number of Western Sony developers to support SCE Japan Studio's Team Ico on the highly-anticipated title.
