It may sound like a broken record at this point, Uncharted 4 has been delayed again. Though the explanation appears to indicate this is the last delay players will have to endure before playing Nathan Drake’s latest adventure.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony’s Shawn Layden revealed that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will now arrive on the PlayStation 4 worldwide on May 10.
Layden explained the reasons for this latest delay outside of April did not come because the game requires more development time, but “in an effort to meet the considerable worldwide demand, and to ensure that all gamers worldwide have the opportunity to play the game on the day one.” The extra few weeks “allow for extra manufacturing time” to bring the game to territories throughout the world simultaneously.
Uncharted had was last set to release on April 26, which itself was a delayed release date from its planned 2015 release. The most recent delay in particular was cited as a means to give the team at Naughty Dog more time to polish and deliver the experience players expect.
The first Nathan Drake adventure for the PlayStation 4, Uncharted 4 will see Nathan Drake return to his thieving ways after leaving it behind to start a family life when his past comes back to haunt him. Check out the story trailer below.
