Via a post on the PlayStation Blog, creative director Neil Druckmann and game director Bruce Straley announced Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End had been delayed again, this time until April 26, 2016.
Druckmann and Straley called Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End their “largest Uncharted game to date” and realized as they “approached [their] final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels” that “several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line.”
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was originally scheduled for release this fall, but was delayed until March 16, 2016. Both delays have reportedly been necessary for the team to create the best possible experience. In the wake of games like Assassin’s Creed: Unity or the Arkham Knight PC release, delays are a welcome change of pace to ensure the highest quality. Sure, we’ll have to wait an extra month for Nathan Drake’s final adventure, but if Druckmann and Straley are to be believed, it’ll be well worth the wait.
