Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is without doubt one of the most hotly anticipated games on the horizon, and certainly the most anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive. We’ve seen quite a lot of the game recently, including a great looking gameplay trailer which was first shown at 2014’s PlayStation Experience, and it looks fantastic.
The game was originally aiming for a release date in 2015 but we are sad to report that Uncharted 4 has been delayed and will now be released in Spring 2016. Earlier today, a post was published on the Official PlayStation Blog which was written by Uncharted 4’s directors, Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann. The post announced the news of the game’s delay and explained why it was necessary.
“After spending so many years with Nathan Drake, he means a lot to the team, and telling the climactic chapter of his adventures is a task we don’t take lightly – this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for.” the post read.
“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.”
The post finished with Straley and Druckmann thanking fans for their patience and promising that it will be worth the wait, describing the game as a thrilling and emotional ride.
