After receiving delays until March and April 2016, Uncharted 4 has been pushed back yet again. Uncharted 4 is now scheduled for release on May 10 2016.
In an update on the Playstation Blog (via. IGN), Sony executive Shawn Layden posted: “In an effort to meet the considerable worldwide demand, and to ensure that all gamers worldwide have the opportunity to play the game on day one, we have chosen to postpone the launch of the game by two weeks to allow for extra manufacturing time.”
Layden continued in the post, “We know this news might be disappointing, and we are sorry to have to make you wait a little longer to play Naughty Dog’s latest. The good news is that the game is phenomenal — we are fully confident that it will be worth the wait and the team at Naughty Dog is eager as ever for you to experience Nathan Drake’s final adventure.”
The game was originally planned for 2015, but after directors Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond left Naughty Dog, the sequel saw an entire re-write. VG247 reported last month that Naughty Dog had returned to the motion capture studio – so perhaps the two-week suspension wasn’t entirely unexpected.
Although the game is taking a little longer than expected, fans will still be able to try out the game in an open beta stress test coming this weekend.
