It isn’t the worst delay we have had but unfortunately, you will have to wait an extra few weeks to get your hands on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Initially due the end of March, 2016, the final installment in the highly-successful Uncharted series has been pushed back and will now be released in the UK on April 29th, 2016, revealed on the official PlayStation Blog. Speaking about the delay, Naughty Dog Directors Bruce Straley & Neil Druckmann, stated the following:
This is our largest Uncharted, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner. However, as we started to approach our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realised that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line.
After carefully considering all of our options, we decided to extend our schedule, making sure that we get a few more polish passes before submitting our gold master (the final disc for manufacturing).
Pushing the date is not an easy choice, and we wouldn’t do it if we didn’t feel in our hearts it’s the best course of action for the game. To you, our loyal fans, we hope you’ll accept our sincere apology. We know many of you have been waiting patiently for Nathan Drake’s final chapter, and now we humbly ask you to wait a bit longer.
