Uncharted 4 Delayed Again
Ben Sheene / Mar 2nd, 2016 No Comments
Uncharted 4‘s release date has been pushed back yet again and will now release on May 10, 2016.
Sony Computer Entertainment America’s President and CEO Shawn Layden announced the news on Sony’s PlayStation Blog. “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,” said Layden. “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.”
Naughty Dog‘s Creative Director Neil Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley took to the PlayStation Blog in late December to reveal that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End had been moved from its March 18 release date to April 26. The two said the delay was meant to add some final polish on key sequences in the studio’s final outing with Nathan Drake.
Players will be able to get an early taste of Uncharted 4 when a stress test for the game’s multiplayer launches on March 4 at 9:00 AM PST. Naughty Dog wants to ensure a smooth launch of the multiplayer at launch and said a PlayStation Plus subscription is not required to participate, allowing as many people as possible to jump into the servers. The stress test will end on March 6 at 11:59 PM PST.
Another delay for Uncharted 4 is disappointing news. It is perhaps one of the most anticipated games of 2016 and likely at the top of every PS4 owner’s wish list. Delaying the game again to push a worldwide release date is an honorable part on Sony’s end so everyone can get it at the same time. However, many will still wonder if the delay is meant to give Naughty Dog a bit more time to work on the game or make sure no assets from other games sneaked into the final product.
