Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End delayed for a year
Well Amigos, the (presumably) final chapter in the Uncharted series has been delayed by several months and now has been pushed out of 2015 altogether. While the wait will surely be met by some initial complaining (but what isn’t?) the extra time should not only ensure we get a high quality game that continues one of the most amazing and immersive interactive entertainment properties out there, but it also means that the game doesn’t get sandwiched around the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider and other games this fall and holiday season.
This news update came via the Playstation blog in a posting from the directors of the game and is included below.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End coming Spring 2016
A note from directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for your patience – we know the extra wait will be excruciating, but you’ll see it will be worth it as we reveal more about Uncharted 4 over the next year. The team at Naughty Dog will be heads down working through 2015 making sure that Nathan Drake’s story gets the closure it deserves. Come Spring 2016, you and Nate are in for one thrilling, emotional ride.
Well, with that bittersweet news lets check out that 15 minute gameplay trailer that we DO have to enjoy and salivate over shall we?
