sounds good, fingers crossed a new title which has a fast turnaround...

So now I'm imagining this as Mono in a dream state seeing this Golem in place of Wander and directing him to various dwellings/villages throughout the land to destroy and by the end, he's a man and needs to fight monsters...
Edit: or actually, you stay as this monster and the sword is used to defeat you and separate you into sixteen parts and lock you inside the debris of the places you destroyed which end up taking shape into the colossi.

But I thought Ueda parted ways with Sony.
He didn't.

Shuhei Yoshida said that they are still in a good relationship and Sony would love to work with him again.

He said that TLG didn't cost nearly as much as many people assume and wasn't really an expensive project.

Kojima, Miyazaki, and now Ueda -- that feeling if getting cock teased by your three favorite game makers at the same time. :-/
Possibly Itsuno too if the rumors are true.

Now imagine Kamiya joining the party as well.

nah, he is probably directing Bayonetta 3.

He is no longer an employee of Sony, but I believe genDESIGN has a partnership with Sony in the same style as Quantic Dream (which is an independent studio but launches games only for the Sony consoles)

Hmm. There was an interview from... it must have been forever ago, where Fumito Ueda said they almost made the protagonist of The Last Guardian a girl because she would offset the monstrousness of Trico in an interesting way. I wonder if that's an idea he's brought with him to this new project.

He did say at one point that he was planning to finish his next game much more quickly. Who knows if that will play out, but I wonder if he had already started prior to TLG’s release.

He could have. If I remember correctly, there where years in-between The Last Guardian's announcement and release where he wasn't working on The Last Guardian at all?

Probably nothing SotC related but I'd love if it were, even if it's a completely different style of game. Loved the world of SotC. Let me explore beyond that damn wind barrier!

The Last Guardian was one of the most disappointing games I've played, but you best believe I'm still interested in this.

SotC and Ico were masterpieces.

Oh fuck! I'm getting hyped up all over again!

I don't think that image screams SotC 2. Unless they change what Mono looks like in the remake, in no way does that look like her. The birds going up so high and that hand(?) are reminiscent. Maybe a spiritual successor in the same way The Last Guardian was more of a successor to Ico.

Ueda has mentioned wanting to return to open world games at least so while not SotC maybe something a bit more in that vein than linear adventure.
