Nathan Drake’s character arc is stretching on further than expected. Sony today announced that “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” will not make its 2015 release window, instead slipping into spring of 2016.
“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,” co-directors
Bruce Straley and Neil Druckman explained in a statement on Sony’s official PlayStation Blog, adding,
“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.”
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has had an eventful development cycle. It was announced in late 2013 as a project headed up by creative director Amy Hennig and director Justin Richmond.
Sony set the 2015 release window just months after those departures, at E3 2014 last June.
Hopefully they’re making the game as amazing as it possibly can be. As a huge Uncharted fan from the PS3 days, I hope that Uncharted 4 lives up-to my expectations and that it finally closes Drakes’s saga.
