Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has finally gone gold, Naughty Dog has announced. The game is on track to release on May 10th, and marks the end of Nathan Drake’s journeys. The game was originally expected to release right this month, in March, but was delayed to May 10th. Now that the game has gone gold, it will finally be put down to disc and sent for manufacturing.
Naughty Dog took to Twitter to share their jubilation at the game going gold, as did individual developers from the studio, such as Creative Director Neil Druckmann, Naughty Dog Co-President Christophe Balestra and Game Director Bruce Straley:

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is both the first original Uncharted game to release on the PlayStation 4, and the last Uncharted game to be developed by Naughty Dog. The future of the franchise is uncertain, and it may either quietly disappear, or be handed over to another developer. It’s all up to Sony and what they decide is the best course of action.
