Bad news for Nathan Drake fans, as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed until spring 2016.
In a posting on PS Blog, directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley stated that the game became “much more ambitious that we originally envisioned”.
The post goes on to explain the delay, saying: “After spending so many years with Nathan Drake, he means a lot to the team, and telling the climactic chapter of his adventures is a task we don’t take lightly – this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for.”
While the delay is certainly a bummer for fans, it’s important to note that polishing the game up will result in a far more enjoyable experience for players. Games like Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Halo: Master Chief Collection have been plagued by well-documented bugs, compromising the gameplay experience. The games would have definitely benefitted from more time in development, so it’s nice to see Naughty Dog taking extra care of the hugely anticipated game. After all, The Last Of Us was delayed, and that turned out pretty darn good.
