The Last Guardian, the Moby Dick of video games, was finally shown during Sony’s E3 press-conference. The game looked amazing and hopefully it will not disappear again.
The game which started its development cycle on PlayStation 3, will now be released exclusively on PlayStation 4. During E3 we were also told that a studio named genDESIGN is working on The Last Guardian.
The studio consists of Fumito Ueda and a number of Team ICO developers, who are working hard to make sure The Last Guardian is released as announced.
Recently a website for the new studio went live and it was revealed that genDESIGN was created back in 2014. On top of that, there is some really impressive concept art shared on the webpage, which you can see down below.
The studio is working on the game’s Animation, Direction, Character Design, Concept Art, Level Design Direction, Art Direction, Narrative and Storyboarding and Research & Development.
Interestingly, The Last Guardian isn’t the only game the studio is working on. In a recent Tweet, genDESIGN revealed that they are hiring for a new project.

We don’t know what this project is and when it will be revealed. However, we may not hear much about it till the release of The Last Guardian.
