Naughty Dog’s popular adventure game franchise, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, has been pushed back from its original 2015 release date to spring 2016. A joint statement was posted on the PlayStation blog on 11th March.
According to this blog, Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckman and Bruce Straley declared to fans that this game was going to be more ambitious than what they had initially envisioned. Druckman wrote that the developers have spent a lot of time with Nathan Drake while creating the story and gameplay of previous releases in this franchise. As a result, he admitted that preparing the climatic chapter of all his adventures, “….is a task we don’t take lightly,”.
For the game to be a great success among its hardcore fans, it needs to have a story with great attention to detail and definite pacing that Naughty Dog is so famous for. Hence, they have taken the tough decision of pushing back the release date from where it used to be. With a few more months of development, Uncharted 4 will become the title that meets the standards of Naughty Dog developers and highly-anticipating gamers worldwide. Only then will gamers get to experience the high standards that they have been expecting from Naughty Dog. In 2013, during the same month as PlayStation 4’s release, a short teaser trailer announced this game for the first time.
It was indicated that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be launched exclusively on the new gaming consoles. This game will be set around three years after the events of Uncharted 3. In this upcoming tile, Nathan Drake, the game’s protagonist has settled into a normal life. Nathan’s world is turned upside down when his brother Sam comes back after being presumed dead. He further enlists Nathan’s help as they travel all around the world looking for treasure and a long lost pirate colony.
The game is set for release in spring 2016, and the developers have promised that the fans are in for a thrilling, emotional ride. They assured, “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,”
In the meantime, it seems like Naughty Dog is interested in making multiplayer maps along with the usual single player levels for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. On its official careers website, Naughty Dog has posted the need of several positions.
