Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, the directors of the upcoming Uncharted title, took to the PlayStation blog earlier today to state that Uncharted 4 will not be released until sometime in spring 2016:
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. Giving us a few extra months will make certain that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End not only meets the team’s high standards, but the high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title.
The two thanked fans for their continued patience and promised that the extra months will deliver on the visceral and emotional levels that players expect from Nathan Drake. While this is certainly disappointing news, hopefully it works out for the best of the project.
