It seems that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is the latest game to be hit with a delay in its release date. In a blog post released by the game’s directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann, they gave us insight into why the delay is happening as well as a new release window. You can look at some excerpts from their blog post below.
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.
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.
It’s great that Naughty Dog is taking their time with the newest installment in their most lucrative franchise. While the delay does come to the dismay of many fans, we should all rest assured that our patience will be rewarded with a product that will live up to both the fans and the company’s elevated level of expectations.
