A usually reliable source of leaks on NeoGAF has claimed a number of upcoming big reveals for the PlayStation 4, including the release of Team ICO's The Last Guardian.
It's been over eight years since Team ICO released Shadow of the Colossus, and fans have been champing at the bit since the reveal of its third title, The Last Guardian, at 2009's E3. It's been so long, though, that many have given up hope of ever seeing the artistic studio's game about a boy and his giant baby griffin friend materialise. If this latest rumour turns out to be untrue, it will be a very cruel thing indeed.
Ahsan Rasheed, AKA Thuway, who is known on NeoGAF for his usually reliable leaks of this kind, has revealed a number of tantalising tidbits on Twitter.
Things to look forward to- 1. Drive Club updated footage 2 PS4 VR + SSM New IP 3. UC 4 4. Guerilla new IP 5. UC4 6. The Last Guardian— Ahsan Rasheed (@thuway) February 18, 2014
This suggests that Uncharted 4 and The Last Guardian will be released for PS4, and that two new games are on the way — a project from Sony Santa Monica, which will be compatible with Sony VR (the company's much-speculated and yet-unannounced virtual-reality headset), and a project from Killzone developer Guerrilla Games.
The Gran Turismo 7 Prologue is a little more up in the air — although it's certainly believable that a prologue is on the way, given that previous rumours had pointed to a release of the full game in 2014.

But it's The Last Guardian that has us the most excited. Even though this information should be taken with a pinch of salt, the fact that Team ICO seems to be still around suggests that they're at least working on something — and this little teaser from Official PlayStation Magazine in the UK certainly indicates that something's up.
