uncharted4-4

Sad news for all you explorer out there: Naughty Dog has delayed Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, the climactic chapter of its Uncharted series, to Spring of 2016.

While a collective cry of PlayStation fanboys and girls could be heard around the world, the comment section of the blog announcing the delay doesn’t seem to be too heartbroken about it. The much-anticipated game is the first iteration of the series on next-gen consoles and is shaping up to be one of the company’s finest achievements. However, the end of an incredible era is not something the developers have taken lightly.

“We’ve made the difficult choice of pushing the game’s release date,” game directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann wrote. “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.”

This statement might explain the lack of internet outrage on the move. This game is very important to fans and they seem to understand that if something isn’t ready, or isn’t of the right standard the developers are aiming for, then it’s going to disappoint. Straley and Druckmann promise that if fans give the studio the time it needs, they and Nate will be “in for one thrilling, emotional ride.”
