Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, originally set for a 2015 release, has been pushed back to spring 2016, according to an update from developer Naughty Dog. Directors Bruce Staley and Neil Druckmann explain that “the game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned.”
“So we’ve made the difficult choice of pushing the game’s release date. Giving us a few extra months will make certain that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End not only meets the team’s high standards but the high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title.”
First teased in late 2013, Uncharted 4 continues the saga of globe-trotting adventurer Nathan Drake. Set three years after the events of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, A Thief’s End kicks off when Nathan’s older brother Sam (voiced by Troy Baker), thought dead, shows up seeking his brother’s help to find a fabled pirate treasure. It’s coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 in spring 2016, probably right around the time Sony’s first Uncharted movie hits big screens, on June 10.
