Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Gets Another, Smaller Delay

Uncharted 4 won't be meeting its April 26 release date, but it won't be missing it by much.

The game is apparently on track to be competed (or go gold) later this month, according to a recent post on the PlayStation blog by Sony president and CEO Shawn Layden, but in order to "meet the considerable worldwide demand" the game has been pushed back by two weeks. Uncharted 4 is now planned for release on May 10. The new date will allow for a simultaneous worldwide release. "We have chosen to postpone the launch of the game by two weeks to allow for extra manufacturing time." Layden writes.

Our Take
Two weeks is a pretty reasonable delay, and actually inspires some extra confidence in the game's quality. I don't think Sony would push it back, even slightly, if it didn't have a lot of faith in the game. I wouldn't consider myself a big Uncharted fan, but this delay weirdly has me more excited to play.
