The release of “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” has been rescheduled once again. The game has been given a new rollout date, May 10, two weeks later than the previously planned April 26 release.
In a blog post by Shawn Layden, CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, he said: “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.”
He also added, “The good news is that the game is phenomenal we are fully confident that it will be worth the wait and the team at Naughty Dog is eager as ever for you to experience Nathan Drake’s final adventure.”
This comes as no surprise since this is the finale in the game series and everyone, including the fans, wants to get their money’s worth. Director Neil Druckmann said in an interview with AP that the game’s story has taken a complete overhaul since their team took over and they want a proper ending for the protagonist Nathan Drake.
“Uncharted” is a story of Nathan Drake along with his friends Elena Fisher and mentor Victor Sullivan. They explore and seek out rare and exotic treasure from remote places on Earth.
This setback, however, is not stopping the multiplayer stress test this weekend. In a blog post by Naughty Dog, players can get to play, see and experience the game especially the multiplayer feature that comes with it.
Until then, those who have the “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection” have more than enough time to replay the game and refresh their memory of the story before the finale.
