Uncharted 4 has suffered another delay and will now release on May 10, 2016.
The news comes by way of a PlayStation Blog post from Shawn Layden, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America. According to Layden, the game is set to go gold later this month but more time is needed to make sure there are enough copies of the game to meet demand.
This is the third time the game has seen a delay, which has been disheartening for fans of the franchise. In happier news, an open multiplayer beta is taking place this Friday, March 4. It will be open to all players and will not be exclusive to those with Playstation Plus subscriptions.
Uncharted 4 will bring the adventures of Nathan Drake to an end in a suitably epic fashion. The game is being headed up by Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, who directed the Last of Us. They took over control of the game after a lot of the core creators of Uncharted left Naughty Dog. The title was then dramatically reworked and rewritten.
Since then, voice actor Troy Baker has lent his golden chords to the game as Nate’s long lost brother Sam. He will play some crucial role in the story, but we’ll have to wait just a bit longer to find out.
