It is with much regret that I bring this bad news to you. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has been delayed until Spring 2016.
News of Uncharted 4's delay broke out when the two directors of the game, Neil Drackmann and Bruce Straley, officially posted their statements on the PlayStation Blog informing everyone of Naughty Dog's decision.
Their statements are as follow:
"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.
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."
This is both good news and bad news for gamers. Bad news because now we have to wait an entire year to play the concluding chapter of the Uncharted saga. Good news because Uncharted 4 will not be rushed and Naughty Dog can have all the time in the world to polish Uncharted 4 to perfection. We must all remember a quote from the one and only, Shigeru Miyamoto:
