Well…this is a bummer, though not as bad as it could be. Fans of the Uncharted series have already been hit with one delay for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, but now we’re getting another. Today, Sony and Naughty Dog revealed on the PlayStation blog that the game will now release on April 26, 2016.
“This is our largest Uncharted game to date, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner.
“However, as we approached our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realized that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line. After carefully considering all of our options, we decided to extend our schedule, making sure that we get a few more polish passes before submitting our gold master (the final disc for manufacturing).”
So it’s just a month back from it’s March date, which isn’t too bad at all. While it’s kind of a bummer, it’s also nice to see a AAA game be willing to step back and get it right, than release a title with a bunch of bugs (something that’s happened too often in recent memory).
