In a new interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, new Sony Computer Entertainment head, Shuhei Yoshida, stated that Team ICO has smoething “really, really good on the way”. He says this after giving us a brief history of their work.
â€œThey are working on a title. I started the ICO project. Ueda-san joined my team in Japan as a cinematic animator, but he created a short movie and presented it to me and said, â€œI want to make this game.â€
I said, â€œYes, letâ€™s do it, but you have never made a game. We have to have experienced people do it,â€ so it took a while, recruiting one person at a time. And because Fumito Ueda doesnâ€™t compromise, we had to move the development from PSone to PlayStation 2. Then I couldnâ€™t complete the game because I moved to the United States.
It took four years and the second game took four years too. So I started calling them the â€˜Olympic Team.â€™ They havenâ€™t released a PS3 title yet – of course not – theyâ€™ll take four years! But they have something really, really good on the way.â€
