Looks like we’re going to have to survive on our own without Uncharted 4 until 2016

Well poop. If you were getting psyched to play as Nathan Drake again this year then Naughty Dog has some bad news for you. The game is getting pushed back until 2016. It’s all for good reason though, as the development team want to give you a really great game.

Originally set to launch around the end of the year, at least that’s what we all hoped, Naughty Dog directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley revealed on the PlayStation blog that the game won’t be released until 2016.

“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,” they revealed said in an official statement. “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.

“Thank you for your patience,” the conclude. “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.”

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was initially announced at E3 in 2014, even back then the wait until 2015 was long enough, I guess another year on the clock is okay.. right?
