Naughty Dog’s upcoming PS4-exclusive sequel has been delayed and will now launch a little over a month later on April 26, 2016. A post up on the PlayStation blog confirms the new release date, with Creative Director Neil Druckmann, and Game Director Bruce Straley, stating that they need just a bit more time to polish the game.
“This is our largest Uncharted game to date, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner. However, as we approached our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realized that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line. After carefully considering all of our options, we decided to extend our schedule, making sure that we get a few more polish passes before submitting our gold master (the final disc for manufacturing).“
The two offered their sincere apologies to the many fans who are eagerly waiting to experience Nathan Drake’s final adventure.
“Pushing the date is not an easy choice, and we wouldn’t do it if we didn’t feel in our hearts it’s the best course of action for the game. To you, our loyal fans, we hope you’ll accept our sincere apology. We know many of you have been waiting patiently for Nathan Drake’s final chapter, and now we humbly ask you to wait a bit longer.”
Naughty Dog has released the extended version of the highly talked about Uncharted 4 demo, shown at this year’s E3. The extra footage picks up (Obviously) where the previous video left, as Nathan continues his attempt to rescue his older Brother Sam from his pursuers. What follows is an action packed spectacle that puts a lot of movies to shame.
You can skip ahead to the 7:30 mark in the video if you want to get straight to the new footage. Honestly though, watching it from start to finish, makes it that much cooler.
Uncharted: A Thief’s End will release in Spring 2016 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
Remember the kick ass gameplay demo of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Sony showed at this year’s E3? Well an extended version of it was shown behind closed doors for the gaming press, and now everyone else will get a chance to see it in action.
Developer Naughty Dog sent out a tweet earlier stating that everyone can watch the extended gameplay on via their twitch channel, on July 1 at 11am PST. The tweet is accompanied with a little .gif that offers fans a very brief glimpse of what’s to come.
Fans were introduced to Nathan Drake’s older brother at the end of yesterday’s, Uncharted 4 gameplay reveal. It was then revealed by voice actor Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Shadow of Mordor) that he was in fact the voice of Drake’s big bro.
"Good to see you're alive, little brother." Yes, that was me. Damn proud.
Turns out, Baker wasn’t originally set to play the mysterious Drake (If that is even his last name). Tv Actor/writer Todd Stashwick (Heroes, Supernatural) has confirmed that role was once his, when asked about it by yours truly on twitter.
Stashwick was confirmed late last year, to be the mysterious voice in the Uncharted teaser trailer and was even providing motion capture. Many speculated that he was playing the game’s main antagonist or an older Nathan Drake.
Early this year however, fans learned that he was no longer tied to the role. He is currently co-writing with former Uncharted writer, Amy Hennig for Visceral Games’ Star Wars project.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is scheduled for a 2015 release.
Sony has announced a release date for its Uncharted movie, based on the popular PlayStation franchise. The video game adaptation is scheduled for June 10, 2016 — a slot that was originally set for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, the Webhead’s sequel has now been pushed until 2018.
The Studio has yet to cast someone to fill the shoes of charismatic protagonist Nathan Drake, but according to Deadline Sony is still eyeing Mark Whalberg for the role though his reps and Sony claimed that “nothing has happened yet”.
The film will be directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), while the latest draft of the screenplay is being written by David Guggenheim (Safe House). Charles Roven (The Dark Knight), Avi Arad (The Amazing Spider-man 2), Ari Arad and Alex Gartner (28 Days Later) will produce.
Having sold 18 million copies worldwide and receiving critical acclaim from gamers and reviewers alike, it is safe to say Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series has done pretty great on the PS3. With Uncharted 4: A thief’s End set to release on the PlayStation 4 in the coming future, its predecessors may end up joining it.
During an interview with Eurogamer about the strength of PlayStation’s 2014 lineup, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) chief Shuhei Yoshida refers to the Uncharted series as “a good candidate” for a PS4 remaster when asked about the possibility of more titles following in The Last of Us‘ footsteps.
“Almost 50 per cent of people who have purchased a PS4 didn’t own a PS3, and that’s lots of people that missed exclusive PS3 titles like The Last of Us, so it’s a great way to welcome those people back to PlayStation, saying this is what you missed.” Yoshida explained.
“There are requests from some consumers for games that were released later in the generation, like Uncharted, which people might have missed,” adds Yoshida. “That would be a good candidate. We don’t want to flood the market with remade games either.”
Yoshida also added that they “don’t want to flood the market with remade games either.” so nothing is set in stone, but if any game/series has a strong chance at being redone for the PlayStation, then the adventures of Nathan Drake must be pretty high on that list.
