It was recently announced by Sony that the highly anticipated release of “Uncharted 4” has been delayed even longer. It will now release sometime in spring 2016. Sad faces ensue.
The directors of the game, Neill Druckmann and Bruce Straley, released an official statement to reassure fans that the delay was in their best interest. They said,
“Since we showed you our first gameplay reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, more of the game and story have come together and it’s become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned,” said Druckmann and Straley about meeting expectations on the title. They continued, “”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.”
This is another game in a long list lately of games that fail to meet their initial launch date. Usually due to the growing technology of latest gaming consoles and systems and desire to have the games look as good as possible. Recently Driveclub, Bloodborne, The Witcher 3, Watch Dogs and Batman: Arkham Knight have all experience delays.
Druckmann and Starlet added that the wait would be worth it for players, stating,
“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 official release day for the PS4 exclusive has not been announced.
