Uncharted 4 delayed…Again

The wait is now literally killing us

Earlier today Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley,Uncharted 4’s Creative Director and Game Director respectively, took to the PlayStation Blog to announce the delay.

They had the following to say:

“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).
Pushing the date is not an easy choice, and we wouldn’t do it if we didn’t feel in our hearts it’s the best course of action for the game. To you, our loyal fans, we hope you’ll accept our sincere apology. We know many of you have been waiting patiently for Nathan Drake’s final chapter, and now we humbly ask you to wait a bit longer.
On April 26, 2016 the most ambitious installment in the Uncharted series will be in your hands.
Neil Druckmann & Bruce Straley”

While it is disappointing it’s not the biggest delay in the world, just one more month. It was already pushed back from fall of this year to March 2016 and at least they acknowledge that some things still need to be worked out as opposed to realising the game and then patching it in the following days and weeks after launch, I’m looking at you Arkham Knight.
