Last week on December 23, In a post to the official Playstation blog Neil Druckmann, Creative director at Naughty Dog and Bruce Straley, Game Director of Uncharted 4, announced that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed.
The Uncharted 4 dev team explained the move with the following:
This is our largest Uncharted game to date, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner. However, as we approached our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realized that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line. After carefully considering all of our options, we decided to extend our schedule, making sure that we get a few more polish passes before submitting our gold master (the final disc for manufacturing).
Druckmann and Straley named April 26, 2016 as the game’s new release date. The Previous date had been March 18, 2016 so this will only be a delay of a little over a month.
