DELAYED – Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
One of the most eagerly awaited games of 2015 has been delayed, by Sony, until Spring 2016… Nooooooo!!
This news has deeply distressed me, and it has probably distressed you all too?! For one of the most anticipated games of 2015, Sony has announced the delay of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End to Spring 2016. The two directors who’re heading project, Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley of Naughty Dog, have said that they felt the delay necessary so that the game completely lives up to the expectations of it’s fans.
“Since we showed you our first gameplay reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, more of the game and story have come together, and it’s become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned,” which came from Druckmann and Straley in a prepared statement. “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 directors concluded.
Uncharted 4 was set to release this year (2015) at some point, but a release date was not yet decided. There was bound to be frustration in fans coming to accept this, but Straley said that they understood – “Thank you for your patience–we know the extra wait will be excruciating, but you’ll see it will be worth it as we reveal more about Uncharted 4 over the next year,”. “The team at Naughty Dog will be heads down working through 2015 making sure that Nathan Drake’s story gets the closure it deserves. Come spring 2016, you and Nate are in for one thrilling, emotional ride.”
