‘Uncharted 4′ not coming until spring 2016

- March 11th, 2015

Sorry, Nathan Drake fans. It looks like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End won’t be coming until spring 2016.

While originally expected to be released this fall, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann and Bruce Staley say in a post on PlayStation’s official blog that the game turned out to be “more ambitious” than the company expected it to be:

“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.”

“Thank you for your patience,” the post continues, “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.”

As Mashable points out, this could mess up Sony’s holiday plans as the game would have been the big PlayStation 4 exclusive. (The game won’t be available for Xbox One or Windows.)  But I’m sure Sony will figure something out.

To get an idea of what Uncharted 4 will look like, the blog includes a video of gameplay it first revealed back in December.

Sony has pulled a controversial PlayStation Vita ad from its YouTube, The Verge reports.

The ad starts with a porn-staresue doctor seemingly accuse the viewer of chronic masturbation:

Then she goes on to list on the places the viewer likes to do “it.” Eventually she pulls out a PS Vita and it becomes clear that she’s actually been talking about the the remote play feature the device shares with the PlayStation 4 and Xperia Z smartphone.

Business Insider reports Sony first posted the now-pulled ad on its European PlayStation YouTube channel on Friday, but it has been reposted elsewhere. You can watch it below.
