Previously aiming for a 2015 launch, Naughty Dog announced today Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for the PlayStation 4 has been delayed until Spring 2016.

Taking to the PlayStation Blog, Uncharted 4 Directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley revealed that, since the first gameplay reveal last year, “More of the game and story have come together, and it’s become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned.”

They continued:

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.

We’ll learn more about A Thief’s End over the next year, with Naughty Dog 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.”

What do you think of the delay? Do you hope Sony releases an Uncharted Collection to hold us over until next year?
