Earlier tonight, SCEA President and CEO Shawn Layden confirmed in a PlayStation Blog post that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed by two weeks and is now scheduled to launch worldwide on May 10th. Below is a detailed explanation as to why we won’t get to experience Drake’s next adventure sooner.
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.
Delays are an everyday occurrence in this industry and therefore this news isn’t the least bit surprising. The fact that this particular title has been delayed on three separate occasions is definitely concerning, but the latest story trailer has already proven this title will be well worth the wait. As an added bonus, we all will get to experience the open multiplayer beta this upcoming weekend.
