New Release Date for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

As you know, Naughty Dog is wrapping up production on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End with the game on track to go gold and into production later this month. 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.

Therefore, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has a new worldwide release date of May 10, 2016.

We know this news might be disappointing, and we are sorry to have to make you wait a little longer to play Naughty Dog’s latest. 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.

We thank you for your continued support for PlayStation.

  • AHAHAHHAHA. I KNEW NAUGHTY DOG WOULD DO THIS. YOU HAVE BEEN ****ING UP THE PRODUCTION SINCE AMY HENNIG LEFT.
    Greaat. Mmkay, time to call the game, “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s Delay”
    Bring the game back to the March 18th, 2016 release date already.
    Since you guys have decided to delay the game for a THIRD time, I’m expecting this game to be the BEST game EVER created and EONS ahead of anything anyone can create.

  • That is OK. Honestly I wish other companies would do the same. You know, take the extra time needed to fix any bugs or glitches and possibly missing features. Cap(coughs)com…

  • I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it. Take the time to do it right. Drake deserves a proper send off.

  • Terrible decision at leas do not delay the digital versión terrible

  • So let me get this straight, Uncharted 4 is the first ever game to get a delay, due to PRE-ORDERS!?!?

  • I’m okay with games being delayed a bit, but I do feel like nowadays there is no weight to a release date anymore. I would have preferred it being given a release quarter/window until they know for sure that the date can be reached, then attaching a date once they are confident in the product making that launch instead of giving the public a solid date to look forward to and then constantly changing it. Still, this looks like it could be the last delay the game will have, and I’ll still enjoy it that’s for sure. I just wish this weren’t such a common thing.

  • I prefer a finish game late, than a unfinished game in time

  • this is bull****!!!!!, to meet worldwide demand whatever!!! thats why there is downloadable copies of the game

  • To be honest i am so tired of this delay after delay after delay and promises promises promises. So they think they are allowed to mess with peoples head and just delay delay. Im not even trusting it will come out in May 10. They already showed a story trailer showing it is coming april 26, remove that and change it!!!!!!!!!!!.

    Why not just delay the game to 2017 December. I am done with this. They probably give you open beta as an excuse, you arent slick Sony and ND

    • Since you’re “done” I take it you won’t be getting the game then. In which case I am not sure why you’re so upset.

  • Can’t even hit 60 fps on a console supposedly 10 more powerful than ps3. In 2016 and Moore’s law that’s unacceptable!

  • Why? Delayed again? Please don’t delay again after this. I can’t wait to play already.

  • Soo… i guess i’ll be waiting on the next release date in June im sure at E3.. I get the reason, but this is like delay 4.

    @fourfour44 – The multiplayer is actually very fun in the Uncharted games, well U2 was fair balanced and amazing, U3 was some kind of COD junk all thrown together with no balance and “kickbacks”. ND is terrible with matchmaking though. Still enjoyable experiences though.

    Speaking of which, that might be the ext delay message, separating the campaign and multiplayer, but then the multiplayer will comes out first. haha.

  • Thats alright, my birthday is only a few day away after this new release date! Saves me buying it, someone else will hehehehe.
    Every cloud has a silver lining B-)
    Ps but seriously tho please do not delay it anymore, youre lucky the date suits me better otherwise i’ll call the kennel to report loose naughtydogs! >:)

  • you gotta be kidding me.

  • I’m ok with Naughty Dog taking has long as they need even if it means I may never get the chance to play it. Their work is phenomenal and I wish them nothing but continued success. I hope I do get the opportunity to play this and finish out Nathan Drake’s amazing story.

  • Gotta get in on this, because, despite thinking he was finally wrong…

    Colin was right!

    Again!!!

    Can we all just blame @pwamcider? Or Kevin?

  • I was so right and I really don’t mind about the delay. Worldwide Release on May 10th sounds Gr8. Greatness comes with some patience too, come what M A Y !

  • I preordered on psn, i could care less about a disc shortage which is a full blown lie, getting a refund til 2 days before release now, cant delay it that close to launch

  • Wait, haven’t I seen this same post before? Several times? The Uncharted Last Guardian?

    Just kidding. I’m actually relieved my Dark Souls 3 NG won’t be interrupted.

  • …. It’s a joke?

  • Whelp, there goes that…
    I originally scheduled March 18th off from work, just to play this game. When they delayed it, I gave up that day. And as luck would have it, I already had the week of April 26th scheduled as vacation (as I’m moving that weekend and wanted the week to unpack and settle in). So that was a nice surprise to be getting the game when I have a whole week to play it.

    Now it’s in May… so I’m just stuck with playing it around work, and avoiding spoilers from my friends and the internet…

    Now I almost hope it gets delayed until the beginning of July, when my next vacation is scheduled…

  • If they’re that worries about pressing enough disks then get cracking ffs!! What a crock! This is a tactical decision!!

  • Hopefully this gets at least two more people (besides me) to play the Ratchet & Clank reboot before spending their money on this!

  • As long as this is the LAST delay and UK gets it same day, unlike how it was going to be 3 days later when in April!

  • Good call to delay it. It’s not the best idea to launch the game shortly after DS3. Either way people are going to buy it, but with this date I think it gives the game the attention it deserves.

  • Oh I see May 10 eh ..here’s another advise to sony ,how about u delay it until E3 2016 it will give u one more entertaining E3 show rather ur last years disappointing ‘Indie Expireince 2015’ or simply show us the whole damn game in terms of e3 gameplays and cutscenes cause at least u’ll have one triple A title worth claiming !

  • DS3 on the hype train, this will be like “the hatefull eight” and “star wars” , good move…. delay some more… like 1 or 2 months, so when people finish playing DS3 they will eventually buy UC4 LOL.

  • Feb April may say December 2017 or 2020

  • That’s a bummer and sort of throws my birthday plans into a well.. BUT I understand completely. And it’s going to be the best game ever made, so it’s definitely going to be worth the wait, I know it. Take all the time you need.

  • Really? I requested the vacations in my job the next 25/04/2016 to 06/05/2016 just for play this game!! I am really bad about that! So i can not play mucho in the rest of the days!!☹️

  • I am getting tired of this Sony!!!! no I don’t care about bug fixes almost no one does. complain about something but this does not change the fact that this game has been delayed almost 5 times when will you keep you’re promises? when will the PlayStation community get what they deserve? you say and the beginning of the year we will be able to play one of the most excusive games now its been pushed almost 5 months sense anyone has played a well deserved game. we didn’t pick PlayStation over xbox for P+ and believe me that thing is a disaster no games besides third party iPhone apps. Sony better fix their ways or they lose me as a customer .

    • A release date is a target not a promise.

      But have fun on another platform because we all know no other game in history will ever be delayed again so you’ll be safe there.

  • I can’t complain cause sometimes these ND games can be difficult to find like TLOU.

  • At first I thought: /sigh

    Then I thought: Even more time between Dark Souls 3 and Uncharted 4? Yay!

  • This is BS, honestly, instead of keep delaying a game for months and moths over and over again, have it finished, then, set a release date, meantime test the game and work to fix all issues. Simple, right?.. You gonna make us, make me wait longer, id just easily wait a bit more, you know? Now that im waiting, why not just some more, till the price drop. Im getting UC4 for $40. Enough said.

  • Hmm, might be a good time for me to finally get a PS4. Will there be any Uncharted PS4 bundles?

  • Gotta manufacture those digital downloads :/

  • #Colinwasright

  • BOOOOOOOOOO!

  • This month, May, what does it matter, I probably won’t be getting to playing this game until summer, given my current backlog. As long as it lives up to Naughty Dog’s gold standard of Uncharted franchise quality (and hopefully exceeds it), I can wait a few more weeks.

  • LOL @ the morons with the “take your time and iron out the bugs.” This delay isn’t about bugs you zombies. He clearly stated why it was being delayed AGAIN.

    Stop being lemmings…

  • I’m sure it will worth the wait, because there one bug in story mode of the last of us that is it from the start, for French language at the beginning when you search for Robert, and u encounter 3 guys the speech as a synchronization problem, and it still there in the remaster. So if it is to prevent such problem, I say : go for it.

  • No problem at all, seriously. I’m actually happy about this, so i will have 4 instead of 2 weeks to play Dark Souls 3. Even though i doubt that i will be a 100% finished by then, haha, but still, i don’t like to “rush” games, and especially something like Dark Souls.
    Also, gives them 2 more weeks to polish the game or work on a patch, w.e.

  • This is one of those games I usually take launch day off so I can play. I’m glad I didn’t already schedule the day as they keep moving it. Hopefully this is the last time. Kind of disappointed especially since it’s just because they need more time to make more copies and mainly because I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time

  • I suspect it is to tweak the PVP part of uncharted, but if it is the main game they are having problems with maybe they shouldn’t have started from scratch when they fired Amy Hennig. She is a talented person, even if they didn’t like her, they could have kept some of her stuff just to speed up production. I hope Sony takes Uncharted to a new dev company like MS did with Halo. NaughtDog doesn’t want to do it anymore let someone else have a kick at the can, and I get more uncharted.

  • I say delay it ONE more time that is like 4 delays and make it next YEAR so we can have an open world Uncharted game.
    I ‘m rely getting tired of trying to take vacation to play this masterpiece look’s like I’ll have to call in sick instead. GO ND

  • Wow! April 26th, I was gonna be outta town for a revival! Now It’s later! It’s as if God said, “Ok, you want it that badly, here you go.” Now I’m hoping it was delayed for “one last time…”

  • Seeing the same discussion here a couple of times, and I think I fall down on the side of frustration here.

    I don’t mind a delay to get the thing right (I want it to be great, Uncharted is my favorite series), but delay it out of 2015 to “Spring” give us a date when you are SUPREMELY confident you can hit that date. I would’ve been totally fine if they had said “Spring” until today, and then said coming May 10th.

    The result of 2015->March18th->April 26th->May 10th means, for me, the hype is dead. I was trying to take time off around the 26th so I could play to my hearts content (I’ll repeat, Uncharted is my absolute favorite series). I’ll certainly be excited when I have it in my hands, but until then I just don’t want to put excitement around the date of May 10th.

    I believe this+The Last of Us delay could also hurt Naughty Dog in the future. If they try to build hype around a release date next time it could be met with a whole bunch of “okay… sure, believe it when I see it” rather than “W00T!”.*

    *- disclaimer here: I’ll still be excited regardless, but I don’t think you can delay a game 3-4 times without some folks loosing faith in your ability to hit release.

  • Not good news definitely but gotta wait….this delay will give me more time to finish some games I got planned.

  • A delay isn’t necessarily bad, but the reason given strikes me as disingenuous. If not, then pretty incompetent. Suggesting two additional weeks is needed to ensure demand, while it may be true, strikes me as bull. Why? Because usually machines are reserved months in advance. They’re not going to have a slot magically open up because somebody wants additional pressings. Something doesn’t quite add up. I have my CE pre-ordered with Amazon. I can only wait and see like the rest of us.

  • come on naughty dog this is unacceptable, stick to a date, this is a game we were so close to.NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT 2 FREAKING MONTHS!!!!!
