During the D.I.C.E. Awards ceremony in Las Vegas, The Last Guardian Director Fumito Ueda received the trophy for Outstanding Achievement in Character. During his brief speech to thank the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences for the award, he mentioned that he’s thinking about a new game.

Ueda-san explained that during development of The Last Guardian he wasn’t thinking much about awards, but now that he received the Outstanding Achievement in Character award, he feels very happy, and it gives him inspiration and desire to to work on his next game that he’s thinking of.

No further details were given about what Ueda-san might be working on over the next few years, but following his departure from Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio a few years ago, he’s now at the helm of his new studio genDesign. This means that we really have no idea on what platforms the game will be on, nor if Sony will be involved in any way.

While we wait to know more, you can read our review of  Ueda-san’s latest masterpiece, The Last Guardian.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
