It may not come as a surprise but Uncharted 4 has disappointingly been delayed until 2016. Neil Druckmann, one of the game’s directors confirmed the news on the playstation blog.
Originally slated for release in November of this year, developer Naughty Dog have explained their reasons for delaying the new game in their flagship series by stating that: “…this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for. So we’ve made the difficult choice of pushing the game’s release date. Giving us a few extra months will make certain that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End not only meets the team’s high standards, but the high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title.”
In the statement, Druckmann continued by thanking the fans for their patience and confirmed that the game will now release in early 2016 by writing: “Come Spring 2016, you and Nate are in for one thrilling, emotional ride.”
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was announced at Sony’s E3 press conference in 2014 and it will be the final game in the hugely successful series. It is not the first Naughty Dog game to get a delay. The Last of Us was delayed by a couple of months not long before release and the game’s directors insist that those extra months ensured the game was the masterpiece is undoubtedly is. So, Naughty Dog, take all the time you need.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will release in Spring 2016 on Playstation 4.
