“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.
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.”
In spite of the delay, they did go on to say that the development team would have plenty of information to release about the game over the course of the coming year.
Sony originally announced Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End at last years E3 and then subsequently showed brand new in game footage at Playstation Experience last December. There was no released date announced, however it was slated for 2015 until this delay was announced.
