Ok, this is happening for the third time. After it got delayed for March 2016, and then for April 2016, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed, again. This time, the release date is moved by two weeks, and the game should (finally) arrive on May 10.
A post on the official PlayStation blog reads: “As you know, Naughty Dog is wrapping up production on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End with the game on track to go gold and into production later this month. In an effort to meet the considerable worldwide demand, and to ensure that all gamers worldwide have the opportunity to play the game on day one, we have chosen to postpone the launch of the game by two weeks to allow for extra manufacturing time.”
As you can see, Sony wants to put more time in the manufacturing of the physical discs. It seems that either demand for the game is really that high, or Sony just wants to bring in just a little more hype before Uncharted 4 gets released. Shawn Layden, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America added in the post, “We know this news might be disappointing, and we are sorry to have to make you wait a little longer to play Naughty Dog’s latest. The good news is that the game is phenomenal — we are fully confident that it will be worth the wait and the team at Naughty Dog is eager as ever for you to experience Nathan Drake’s final adventure. “Either way, we can expect the game in early May, and hope that it won’t be delayed again.
