Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Launch Is Delayed Again

Uncharted 4

While Sony and Naughty Dog have been putting on a full court press when it comes to marketing for the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End it appears that the development team is having a few problems getting the game to market. On Wednesday morning, fans who are eagerly awaiting the release of the game got the opposite of a Christmas present when it was announced the launch of the title has been pushed back for a second time.

Naughty Dog and Sony announced the new release date, April 27 on the official website. The companies announced the developers need a few more weeks in order to work on the largest Uncharted in the series. “This is our largest Uncharted, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner. However, as we started to approach our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realized that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line.” The development team said in the post.

The game was originally slated for a 2015 release but it was pushed back to next spring. Now it will be later in the year than ever before and there are likely going to be quite a few questions about what kind of problems the company keeps running into. Of course, the rebuttal is that Naughty Dog just wants to make sure this last installment is going to be the best its ever produced. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be available exclusively on the PS4 on April 27, 2016.

    A one month delay is common in the industry and nothing to get upset or worried over. Bloodborne also had a similar delay.

    Good for Naughty Dog to take their time to finish the game instead of rushing it incomplete.

    • Michael

      Stop making excuses. They saw how good good Tomb Raider is and realized they had to make some improvements Nothing more.

    • lagann

      Im not making excuses for them.

      They already missed the holiday release window….so they might as well take their time to make sure the game is the best they can make it.

      People will buy the game regardless of when it releases. The ip is strong enough….and Naughty Dog and Sony both know it, hence they can afford to delay it so much compared to their original release date…..also the ps4 is selling so well even with the lack of many good exclusives that they can afford to delay the game to make it better.

      Too many games have been released broken or without enough testing, hence im glad that Naughty Dog and Sony decided to delay the game to make a better game regardless of the reasons.

      Tomb raider is an uncharted wannabe anymore and nd has nothing to fear from that especially since cd can’t write characters or a story worth a damn

    • Rodney Patrick

      How is that when tomb raider come out back in the mid 90’s..smh

    • kevin

      OK and that point is played out. Tomb raider from the 90s is nothing like the new tomb raiders and uncharted is nothing like the 90s tomb raider but the new tomb raiders have more or less aped the uncharted games everybody can see that even reviewers have brought it up in the reviews for the two tomb raider games that just recently released

    • Mr Xrat

      Funny how only Ratbox fanboys talk about Turd Raider 2. Not even established fans of the series though, though it’s not surprising considering how garbage the franchise is now.

  • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

    We will ask Microsoft to tone down our Quantum break launch in April to show them respect.

    • Mark

      Hahaa

  • Rodney Patrick

    Sony did not want to release it around the same time as the division nor quantum break for that matter,so instead of the beginning of march when the the division is launching or the beginning of April when quantum break is releasing,Sony is like lets make it the end of April….i smell fear

    • kevin

      Lol gtho the division nor quantum break will be better then uc 4 bet

    • Rodney Patrick

      Yeah okay keep telling yourself that

    • kevin

      Dude I’m just being a realist I’m looking forward to playing all three but nd is on a whole other level compared to the developers of the other two games and there’s a reason uc 4 is already being considered a contender for goty 2016 and the other two aren’t.

    • Rodney Patrick

      Good night son

    • Rodney Patrick

      Open your eyes and stop being such a sonyfangirl,ok they push it back a month fine. Why the end of the month?? Fear I tell you.there’s no where to run to,there’s no where to hide lol

    • kevin

      Hey bro that’s your opinion but nobody beside fanboys would even think that let alone even compare the developers between the two games considering one is considered one of if not the best in the business who’s games sell millions upon millions while the other one is a good developer who games always under sell and aren’t remembered much years later. I’m sure you can figure out which is which here’s a hint though one released 2 masterpieces that are considered some of the best games of all time last gen and the other released only one game that didn’t sell and reviewed ok but imo was an amazing game that I hope we get a sequel to one day.

    • Rodney Patrick

      Yo you are taking this to serious bro.no need to it’s. just a game….smh

    • Tech junkie

      Except Uncharted isn’t really a hot seller at all. Not to take away from the game but I find it funny though all these GOTY titles that can’t out sell Gears of War.

    • kevin

      Well not to be a smart-ass but when xbox doesn’t offer even half the amount of exclusives a ps console does theres not really a lot of choices to choose from. Also the uncharted series has sold over 21 million copies alone and the last of us nd last game sold over ten million so I would say nd games are Def hot sellers

    • Tech junkie

      21 million with 4 releases and 10 million with 2 releases is not bad at all but not all that impressive,it’s no where near CoD, GTA or Halo numbers. Available exclusives has nothing to do with it. I’m not saying sales equates to the best title or worst title. What I’m saying is your sales argument is not a good one, because Uncharted, no mater how good of a game it is is not a hot seller so not a lot of people like it. GTA V on PS3 alone sold more than all the Uncharted’s on PS3 and PS4 put together.

    • kevin

      OK well that 4th title was only on vita and did 1 million so that’s nothing that contributes to the overall numbers really and of course it’s no gta or cod no games truly are. Funny you bring up halo which I’m a huge fan of but since 343 took over those games haven’t sold nowhere near like they used to halo 4 only sold somewhere in the ballpark of 8 to 10 million I think which is on average just about with uc 2 and 3 and the last of us and halo 5 is rumored to not have sold all that well and judging by microsofts silence on it beside that pr release that combined all halo 5 related entertainment analysts might be right. It kills me to say but halo doesn’t have the power it used to anymore I mean just a few years ago it was unthinkable a mainline halo would score in the low 80s on metacritic which is what halo 5 did with its 84.

    • Tech junkie

      The 4th title was a remaster on PS4. Not sure where you are getting you numbers but last gen Halo has always sold in the 10 million range or more. Where UC and TLOU sold like 6.

      Halo 5 sold well, rumored at around 3 million. With an install base less than 1/4 last gen that’s not bad at all. Not amazing but even with twice as many PS4’s on the market I doubt UC4 moves much more.
      Bottom line PS fans aren’t into Uncharted as much as other titles. Not saying it’s not a good game. But it’s not a hot seller.

    • kevin

      Dude the 4th title was not remastered on ps4 and that 21 million figure was from well before the nathan drake collection was even a thing anyway. I said since 343 took over halo they haven’t sold all that well and like you said that 3 million for halo 5 is a rumor and even if it was true that’s still kind of bad since halo 3 sold twice has much at release with around the same install base has the x1 has now which shows the downward trend halo has been on since halo 3. The last of us itself sold 8 million on ps3 at last count with another 2 coming from the ps4 version for a total of 10 million which is outdated because that was reported well over a year ago and the uc games since 2 do between 7 and 9 million which Def qualifies it has a hot seller. I bet you uc 4 will move more then that heck even a few analysts have come out the last few weeks saying uc4 is the biggest game releasing next year and that’s including multiplats and other systems exclusives and that it will sell big you don’t get that kind of backing if you aren’t a hot seller. Now I’m not saying analysts are always right look at patcher lol but that’s their job to predict the market and that’s saying something about the uncharted brand when it’s getting that kind of backing.

    • Tech junkie

      Not sure where you are getting you numbers from. But bottom line Uncharted no matter how good the game is doesn’t Crack the top 10 for sales on PS platforms.

      You can speculate how much it sells all you want. I’d be surprised if it out sells halo 5 even with double the install base.

    • kevin

      I’m getting the numbers from Sony themselves who were the ones that announced the series sold 21 million. Are you talking about the top ten for all time because that I’m not sure about but when a new uncharted releases it most Def does Crack the top ten for sales on ps the year it releases.

  • kevin

    It’s only a month delay no big deal. The last of us was also delayed 2 times with the second and final time being a month delay and look how that turned out

  • Mr Xrat

    Oh no, a whole month. How awful.

    On the plus side, whining about UC4 gives Ratbox fanboys something else to do, other than replay soulless generic Turd Raider 2 for the 40th time.

      When I looked at the draft of 8685 dollars, I accept that my friend’s brother was like really creating cash in his free time with his PC. . His aunt’s neighbor has done this for only 9 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car . Look here for details.
