I have bad news for the fans of Nathan Drake and his saga; Sony, Naughty Dog and those who are responsible for the game, Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, have announced in the official PlayStation blog that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has been delayed until spring 2016. It is a significant blow for the players, since the game was planned for this year and now they will not play it until the next one. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was the flag release of this year for PlayStation 4, it is exclusive for this console and it belongs to one of the most successful sagas of PlayStation and Naughty Dog.
In the announcement, the director basically explain that they have decided to take some extra months for the development because they want to finish the game with an excellent quality. They want to fulfill the expectations of the fans of the saga, and their own expectations about the game, so they want their game to be perfect.

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
They finished their announcement thanking the patience of the players and with a promise that the game will be worth the wait. Having said this, the release of one of the videogames that surprised us the most in the past PlayStation Experience will be delayed up to the spring of the next year.
