Uncharted 4 delayed, won’t be released until ’16

by AOTF Staff

Upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, has been delayed into 2016.  According to an announcement from Naughty Dog, the developer is looking for a few extra months to make sure the game meets the “high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title.”

Naughty Dog says that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is “much more ambitious than we originally envisioned.”

“After spending so many years with Nathan Drake, he means a lot to the team, and telling the climactic chapter of his adventures is a task we don’t take lightly — this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for. So we’ve made the difficult choice of pushing the game’s release date,” writes the developer on the PlayStation Blog.

Spring of 2016 is the new release window for Uncharted 4.  The game had originally been labeled as a 2015 release.
