Nathan Drake’s next adventure has been pushed from its originally planned fall 2015 release to spring 2016 , Naughty Dog has announced via the PlayStation Blog.
Citing Uncharted 4 being “more ambitious” than originally envisioned, Creative director Neil Druckmann had the following to say:
“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.”
