A Thiefing Delay
So you may have missed the announcement yesterday, but if you didn't the Playstation blog read this
Since we showed you our first gameplay reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, 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.
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.
Thank you for your patience — 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. The team at Naughty Dog will be heads down 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.

Yes I know...
We won't be seeing Uncharted 4 this year. As many of you know Uncharted is my one of my favourite series if not my favourite. Although it sucks that I won't have a chance to play this year I trust Naughty Dog knows what they are doing in holding it back. They are the type of company that cares about their product and want all of us as gamers to have the best possible experience.
I am not going to lie and say it is going to be easy. Ever since the first teaser trailer I have been beyond psyched for this. There is other games coming out this year that I will love playing so it isn't a complete loss, but it does hurt nonetheless.
Now excuse me while I crawl up in the corner and cry it out.
