Uncharted 4 delayed into May

But at the very least it’s not the same kind of drastic delay the game has already been subjected to. Originally Naughty Dog’s final entry into the ridiculously popular Uncharted series was meant to launch at the end of 2015, was delayed to March – and then to April.  Uncharted 4 is on track and nearly ready to go gold, but the close timing to the laborious effort of printing has forced Naughty Dog’s hand in the matter.

As such, Uncharted 4 will now be coming two weeks later, launching on May 10th instead. Which put it’s ridiculously close to some big releases at that time too.

SCEA President Shawn Layden explained the delay on a pot on the PlayStation Blog, which broke the news early this morning.

“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,”

“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.”

Although I highly doubt this will make too much of a difference to most, this does put Uncharted 4 in the same week as DOOM, which is launching on May 13th. It also puts it only two weeks away from the highly anticipated return of Mirror’s Edge, with Catalyst hitting shelves on May 24th. Those are two games that might have their own sales affected by Uncharted 4 rather than the other way around, but it does show how big a difference just two weeks can make.

Uncharted 4 is otherwise looking spectacular, with a phenomenal story trailer for Drake’s final adventure recently being released by Naughty Dog. Let’s hope all this waiting pays off.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

    They can delay this game 5 more times, I’ll still be hyped as fuck for it.

    I bet it’s the PVP and MT they’re still working on.

      You know it. Single Player was finished 3 years ago. I am going to wait this title out knowing the thing comes with 6 patches at probably 5Gigs each.

      Its not even 60fps. Bet a third of the production value and time went towards the co-op bollocks. Like Tomb Raider. Who even cares about co-op in a platform adventure game? I suppose its another long term service plan.
