Sony PlayStation and Naughty Dog have announced today that the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be delayed once again. The final “episode” of the series was set to be released on March 18, 2016, but now it’s coming a month and a week later, on April 26, 2016.
Game director Bruce Straley and the creative director Neil Druckmann confirmed this news by saying that the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is “wrapping up production and is shaping up” and that they will finally release the proper Nathan Drake that they’ve promised.
They’ve added that unfortunately in order to make sure that the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is released without bugs and issues, they will need to delay the release date of this game until April 26, 2016.
This is also the largest “Uncharted” game until now and it seems that the developers have been working very hard to make sure that this game will be enjoyed by anyone who will play it.
However, according to Straley and Druckmann, once the developing team has approached to the final deadlines and it started to wrap the game’s level, they’ve realized that some of the key sequences need some extra resources. After the developing team considered all their options, they decided to extend the schedule in order to make sure that the game gets “polished” before releasing it to the public.
Straley and Druckmann also said that pushing the date is not an easy choice for anyone who’s about to release a big game. They’ve added that they know that a lot of loyal fans are waiting for this awesome game and they apologize for the delay of the final chapter of Uncharted.
The Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be released exclusively for PlayStation 4 on April 26, 2016.
