Uncharted 4 Delayed To May 2016 To Meet Worldwide Demand
Uncharted 4 has been delayed once more, and the PS4 exclusive from Naughty Dog will now be releasing globally on May 10th – a two week delay.
Sony’s President Shawn Layden announced the news overnight on the official Playstation US Blog. According Layden, the decision was made “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”.
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.
A few months ago, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was delayed by a month to April 26th, 2016. This was the second delay of the title. The final chapter of Nathan Drake was initially slated for a release last year, but was delayed to Spring 2016 to meet the high standards of Naughty Dog.
“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”, Naughty Dog’s Bruce Straley & Neil Druckmann said last year.
