Oh no!!! It’s true! Your eyes do not deceive you. On the PlayStation.Blog Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End directors Bruce Stanley and Neil Druckmann have revealed that the next game from developer Naughty Dog will now be released in the American Spring of 2016. To us Australians this will most likely be a release date to when Sony released The Order: 1886 this year.
Below is the full post reads:
“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.”
As a massive Naughty dog fan I was looking extremely forward to see this game come out at the end of the year. However, it’s not all bad news. Naughty Dog’s last game The Last of Us was originally scheduled for a May 7th 2013 release date until they delayed the game until June 14th. Who knows what they fixed in that month but I believe it gave us one of the best games of last generation, and to some people, of all time. So if they want to take extra time its fine by me.
