The Last Guardian: A Possible Update

     Here's some decent news about The Last Guardian being released.  All right, not really news, but at least a tidbit of info.  At least a possible hint.  According to Fumito Ueda's recent blog post- http://www.fumi.to/ - Sony is possibly withholding information on the game's release.  Maybe not purposely to ruin anything, but as a waiting-for-the-right-moment official statement.   Perhaps the with all the crazy problems, I personally would think that Sony brought in another game studio to possibly revamp the already spectacular graphics.  There were also rumors about game breaking problems requiring additional help to fix.  Regardless, a bigger team means a bigger and better game.
"While it’s been a long time coming, THE LAST GUARDIAN remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team.

 I should also mention that details regarding THE LAST GUARDIAN's release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement."
     Mr. Ueda, despite the reduction to a creative consulting director, perhaps it's for the better.  Sometimes people need to be pushed to finish things.  Really I don't know if Fumito Ueda's recent blog post is truly pointing to a hint of Sony releasing a statement in addition to the Orbis/Playstation 4 announcement or not, even though previous statements said it would be on PS3.  But it kind of feels like it. 
     In truth, I would believe that Santa Monica Studio may have brought in to reskin or enhance the graphics and fix bugs to help speed production on The Last Guardian and port it to the PS4.  Did another company update Ico and Shadow of the Colossus from PS2 to PS3???  Team Ico is good, but ultimately a VERY SLOW company, and it would totally make sense to bring in a group to improve/finish a game that has kept people waiting for years.
     Dear Sony, please tell us what's going on.  I eagerly await whatever announcements are coming on the 20th, and can only hope that this will be one of them.
