Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed from its previously announced April 26 release date to a new worldwide release date of May 10—two weeks later—Sony Computer Entertainment announced.
This is the latest in a series of delays for the title. Originally planned for release in late 2015, the game was delayed to spring 2016, then given a March 18 release date, then delayed again to April 26, and now, to May 10.
Here is a message from Sony Computer Entertainment America president and CEO Shawn Layden 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.
