Nathan Drake fans looking forward to starting the next adventure in the ongoing Uncharted series will be disappointed to learn that Naughty Dog has this week confirmed they are pushing back the release date of Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End a little until May 10th 2016.
Uncharted 4 was expected to be launching on April 26th 2016 but has now been pushed back 2 weeks until May 10th. Uncharted 4 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive game and is being developed by Naughty Dog.
Shawn Layden President and CEO, SCEA explains a little more about the reason for the delay in the announcement made over on the official PlayStation blog earlier today.
As you know, Naughty Dog is wrapping up production on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End with the game on track to go gold and into production later this month. In an effort to meet the considerable worldwide demand, and to ensure that all gamers worldwide have the opportunity to play the game on day one, we have chosen to postpone the launch of the game by two weeks to allow for extra manufacturing time.
Therefore, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has a new worldwide release date of May 10, 2016.
We know this news might be disappointing, and we are sorry to have to make you wait a little longer to play Naughty Dog’s latest. The good news is that the game is phenomenal — we are fully confident that it will be worth the wait and the team at Naughty Dog is eager as ever for you to experience Nathan Drake’s final adventure.
We thank you for your continued support for PlayStation.
