[Update] Kotaku spoke to Sony's director of communications Patrick Seybold who claims that the news is not true.
[Original Story] When word came down that Fumito Ueda of Team ICO was leaving Sony, one of the first thoughts that came to everyone's minds was what would happen to The Last Guardian. You know... that awesome game that we only saw a smidgen of a trailer at E3 2009. While Sony assured everyone that The Last Guardian would still release, it seems that GameStop knows more than the rest of us.
Readers have contacted Destructoid this morning saying that GameStop called them to let them know that they were having to cancel their preorders for The Last Guardian. Destructoid called both Sony and GameStop, and only GameStop has returned their calls to say that "yes, it has been canceled".
I didn't preorder the game, but I still called my local GameStop and then two other stores in the area because I'm just that paranoid. All three said the same.
So while we have to wait for Sony's official word on the matter, right now the future for The Last Guardian is sadly bleak.
