Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will now be released in spring 2016, Naughty Dog announced this morning.
“We’ve made the difficult choice of pushing the game’s release date,” directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann wrote on the PS Blog.
“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 the statement, the duo said that the game “deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for.”
Sony announced the game at E3 2014, and showed the first in-game footage of Uncharted 4 during its PlayStation Experience event in December.
The game was slated for release sometime in 2015, without an actual date assigned.
