One of the most anticipated games in development for the PlayStation 4, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has just received a release window and it is later than expected.
Neil Druckmann, the Creative Director at Naughty Dog, took to the PlayStation Blog to discuss the release of Uncharted 4. Here is what he had to say regarding the somewhat pushed back release:
“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.”
While it is disappointing in a sense that I wanted to play this as soon as possible, it is nice to see a developer take their time to craft a quality, complete, video game, which is something many other’s struggle with. Druckmann leaves gamers with this last statement:
“Thank you for your patience — we know the extra wait will be excruciating, but you’ll see it will be worth it as we reveal more about Uncharted 4 over the next year. The team at Naughty Dog will be heads down working through 2015 making sure that Nathan Drake’s story gets the closure it deserves. Come Spring 2016, you and Nate are in for one thrilling, emotional ride.”
So Uncharted 4 will be releasing in the Spring of 2016. As Gabe Newell always says, it will be worth the wait!by
