Sony announces fourth delay for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Is Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End the game with most delays in history? It certainly looks like it as Sony today announced that the much awaited Playstation 4 exclusive has been delayed for the fourth time.

Uncharted 4 will now release two weeks later on May 10 from its previous release date of April 26. The game was initially planned to release back in late 2015 but was delayed to Spring 2016 and then March 28 before two further delays.

Here’s what Shawn Layden, Sony Computer Entertainment America president and CEO Shawn Layden had to say about the delay:

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.

Therefore, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has a new worldwide release date of May 10, 2016.

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.

We thank you for your continued support for PlayStation.

Personally I’m a firm believer in the notion of delaying a game with the intention of delivering a superior product, so all praises to Sony and developers Naughty Dog for staying strong to their creative vision and not putting out an inferior and unfinished product.

    Duke Nukem Forever holds the title of most delayed game. I don’t think Uncharted 4 can hold a candle to that.

    • Well, Duke Nukem didn’t have a release date for a long while, in the article I meant the game with the most delays i.e shift from date to date!
