Since The Last Guardian is having a bit of trouble with its development process, Sony has decided to aid Team Ico and has announced that the internal studio Sony Santa Monica (God of War) has joined the  game’s development team.

In an interview with Wired, worldwide studio head Shuhei Yoshida admitted that the rumors of The Last Guardian developer Team Ico calling in for help are true. “Well, you know, it’s not just Santa Monica,” said Yoshida. “We have great tech people in Worldwide Studios. We have a central tech group in the US and the UK, so we are giving them whatever help they need. Technically, we have the best engineers in the US and Europe, so these teams are helping them, giving advice.”

Yoshida also said that creative director Fumito Ueda is still involved in the development of the project. According to Yoshida, the game is playable, but not to the point where Sony is comfortable issuing a release date.
