The plan was to release Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End later this year, but that’s no longer in the cards. Naughty Dog has resolved to delay the highly anticipated title’s arrival until spring 2016.

“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,” Director Neil Druckmann revealed today via the PlayStation Blog.

“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,” he continued. “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.”

The studio hopes a few extra months in the oven will help the project live up to the public’s lofty expectations. Are you happy to wait a tad longer for a more polished product? It’s just fine by me.
