For months, The Last Guardian has sadly been missing in action. That was after repeated delays and the departure of some of its key developers from Sony. The most notable of all in this departure is that of Fumito Ueda, former Team Ico boss. However, he is still working as a contractor on the game, and he even posted a message on his official website:

As some of you may have heard, I left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio some time ago to pursue my creative passions. Nevertheless, I continue working on THE LAST GUARDIAN as a freelance contributor.

While it’s been a long time coming, THE LAST GUARDIAN remains under my creative supervision and is still in development by an incredibly talented team.

I should also mention that details regarding THE LAST GUARDIAN’s release is solely decided by Sony Computer Entertainment, not myself. Please keep an eye out for their official announcement.

Moving forward, it is my intent to continue my involvement with THE LAST GUARDIAN project, as well as pursue new creative projects with a fresh perspective. As I rekindle my passions as a creator, I look forward to seeing where it will take me, and I deeply appreciate your support during this transition.

This means that there’s a possibility that players could hear something about it during Sony’s big February 20 event. Still, words from Ueda doesn’t guarantee people that The Last Guardian would be available some time soon.
