Geez, what big-name title this generation hasn't suffered a delay?
The list continues to grow and the latest unfortunate addition might be the most anticipated game of 2015. …well, now, the most anticipated game of 2016.
As announced over at the PlayStation Blog , Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has been delayed until Spring 2016. Directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley offered the following explanatory statements:
"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."
Uncharted 4 was supposed to arrive later this year, although we technically never had a launch date. Games that have been delayed thus far in the new era: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt , Driveclub , Batman: Arkham Knight , Battlefield: Hardline , Evolve , Watch Dogs , Bloodborne , The Order: 1886 , and the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V .
But man, this one hurts. We really wanted the new Uncharted for the holiday season.
