That one last treasure hunt for Nathan Drake is being delayed two weeks. The new release date for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is May 10th. Why the delay? SCEA CEO Shawn Layden explains:
“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.”
Uncharted 4 is no stranger to delays. It was initially set to release late last year, but that date was pushed back to March. Another delay pushed it to April 27th before this week’s two-week delay. It sounds like the delay isn’t a big deal. Plus, Naughty Dog (the developer) can use the extra time to address any issues found during this weekend’s multiplayer stress test. Own a PS4? Give Uncharted 4’s multiplayer a try. You don’t even need PlayStation Plus.
Here’s Uncharted 4’s story trailer again to help you soak in the news of the delay.
May is packed
I used to lament the dry spells in gaming during the middle of the year. Those days are gone. The delay of Uncharted 4 gives most of us extra time to get through Dark Souls 3. But it also means May is packed with three great looking games.
Uncharted 4 kicks things off May 10th. Doom blasts demons to bits on May 13th. And MIrror’s Edge Catalyst keeps things running on May 24th. I’ll throw Homefront: The Revolution in there on May 17th too for the co-op fans.
Uncharted 4, Doom or Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Which one are you most excited for? And you can’t pick all three. I’m going with Uncharted 4. The graphical spectacle alone will be worth it. Let me know what your top May game is.
