Rumour: Fumito Ueda To Leave Team Ico?

News Rumours Sony

If the name Fumito Ueda is not familiar to you, then you must have missed out on two of the most artistic, creative and original Playstation 2 games of all time. He is the main man behind Ico and Shadow of the Colossus and he is working hard on The Last Guardian. But, according to a report on Eurogamer, The Last Guardian may be Ueda’s last game with Sony, as rumours have circulated that he will be leaving Team Ico, an internal development studio of Sony Computer Entertainment.

Eurogamer also believes that the rumoured departure is the reason behind the delay of The Last Guardian. The Last Guardian’s original release was meant to be roughly at this time (late 2011). However, the title has been pushed into 2012. It was also a no-show at the major game shows of 2011. Ueda, if he has departed, is still working on The Last Guardian, albeit in a freelance position. Then he would pursue personal projects.

However, as Sony’s polices on rumours is not to comment about then, one can only treat it as such until one hears official confirmation.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
