Uncharted 4 Delayed By Naughty Dog

‘Uncharted 4’ release date pushed to spring 2016.

Sony has pushed back the release date of the highly anticipated game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End from 2015 to 2016, citing the need for more time to develop the “nuanced storytelling.” “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,” reads a blog post. The next chapter in Uncharted, the PlayStation’s flagship action-adventure franchise, has been pushed from a fall release date to spring 2016, Sony video-game developer Naughty Dog announced on Wednesday. Although the game never had a specific release date it was implied to be Sony’s big Christmas release for 2015, with European boss Jim Ryan confirming it as the PlayStation 4’s lead release for the entire year in our recent interview with him.

Microsoft were worried enough about the game that they signed up Rise Of The Tomb Raider as an Xbox One timed exclusive, with the two similarly themed games originally intended to go head-to-head. The new release strategy will actually benefit PlayStation’s sister company, Sony Pictures, given that the studio has dated its “Uncharted” film for June 10, 2016. Come Spring 2016, you and Nate are in for one thrilling, emotional ride.” This news is likely to throw some of Sony’s plans up in the air; Uncharted 4 was expected to be the platform’s big holiday exclusive as it won’t be available on Xbox or PC. It’s unprofessional.” Just last month, Rockstar announced it is pushing back another month the release of Grand Theft Auto V for PC, now set for April 14.

There’s no word on what or if there is a single issue that has caused the delay, but to set it back by a full year suggests something substantial within the game is being overhauled. Thank you for your patience — we know the extra wait will be excruciating, but you’ll see it will be worth it, as we reveal more about Uncharted 4 over the next year. It’s the crown jewel in Sony’s exclusive lineup, and it was meant to anchor the 2016 holiday season to drive console sales and go head to head with Microsoft’s big hitter, Halo 5.

I’d be shocked if Naughty Dog doesn’t give us something much better than the lackluster The Order: 1886 or the straight-broken Driveclub, but all these delays just don’t reflect well. Sony still has a massive lead over Microsoft, and in many ways, it seems unlikely that we’re going to see the dynamics of the Xbox One/PS4 generation change too much. It stumbled out of the gate because of pricing, but gradually redeemed itself, catching up to the ascendant Xbox 360 over the course of a few years, largely on the strength of its exclusives.
