A note from Directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann
noooooooo!!!!! just take your time and make it the masterpiece it deserves to be. ND is one of the few devs ill blindly support through the delay.theyve earned that much by making every single game they make worth the wait. there are plenty of games this year anyways... not even gonna bother naming them , the list is pretty huge. no one needs to cram everything into fall just for heck of it.that just leaves the entire remaining year barren releasing it this year along with mgs 5,witcher 3, battlefront, possibly mass effect would of made the goty awards a bloobath anyways that being said, sony still needs a biggie for holidays. fingers crossed for TLGps4 lol.e3 reveal>psx announcement that the game will be available starting ....now!boom!
Sorry about reserving this post, I just wanted to make a poignant statement before people start getting upset or cackle that "SONY HAS NOTHING!" I won't lie, I'm disappointed that I won't be able to play Uncharted 4 until next year, but this is for the best. With the slew of AAA disappointments we have been dealing with throughout all of 2014 and leading into 2015. All I want is a game that delivers on the hype the first time. I remember a Shigeru Miyamoto quote on releasing games before they're ready. http://www.quickmeme.com/im... The point is that the "release now, patch later" culture is embedded way too deep in our industry, and we've already had launch disasters like MCC or DC because people were unwilling to wait. Is it so wrong to want to have a game working the first time, like I want my new car to work the first time after I buy it? I would want to take my new Corvette back to the shop for months before it's in working order. If patch culture is unacceptable in consumer products, then it should be unacceptable in gaming. If this delay causes Uncharted 4 to be a better experience as a whole, and gives me even more bang for my buck, then I'll consider it to be well worth the wait.
Aaaarghhh! I've been looking forward to Uncharted 4 for a very long time and all the previews reveal such promise. Of course no one wants to wait longer, but if the developers need more time to make sure the game has that triple-A polish then that's fine by me.
wasn't that quote years before they could actually do patches and what not? edit: yep it was back in the N64 days way before patches and back then you had the one shot it's either working day one or tough tits the game is forever broken some companies can't afford to delay (MS because they're getting murdered in the sales needed Halo out last christmas for example) DC as a game itself was decent from what i recall, the servers were a piece of crap but hell you can only do so much but if the game's more popular than you think it will be then there'll be issues server side. Also big difference between a car and a game... faulty car will kill you, faulty game will wait a couple of weeks be patched and no harm.... same with other appliances and goods
Take all the time you need ND and make the best Uncharted yet! Plus it doesn't hurt that I can cover some of my back catalog that is so damn long now its not even funny anymore.
Argh no way. This was the biggest PS exclusive of the year. What gives? Ah well. I'd rather have the best possible version of the game than a rushed disappointment. ND know what they are doing. I'm sure.
it sucks, but does it have to do something with this? http://www.paradiger.com/ru... They need to make space for it maybe? Speculation but it can make sense in the end.
Uncharted 4 seems like itll be day one release on sonys project morpheus. It might be possible because we dont know if project morpheus will have some sort of a computer processing unit to aid the ps4. Anyway , i cant wait for project morpheus and uncharted 4.
The news of the game being delayed is unfortunate as it adds 6 more months of waiting to eager gamers. But I must say that I'm shocked at the level of strange questions coming from supposedly the "more informed" group of gamers that are supposed to frequent N4G and online gaming forums. People are running around this thread asking "well if no Uncharted 4, then what else do they have for the Holidays?" I mean cmon guys, are you folks under hypnosis or something? We're talking about supposedly informed gamers here, who don't seem to know that we get steady streams of games they get every month of this year. Or know what else would come out on the PS4 during the holidays besides Uncharted 4. Honestly, if you're asking "what else does the PS4 have this holiday?" You're either doing some "concerned trolling", or you actually really don't know and therefore the community should really not put much value in what you have to say since you're not as knowledgeable in the first place. It sucks that they game got delayed, but it might be for several reasons. From possibly a less buggy game, to higher framerates, to implementing VR, to a better story, or gameplay elements. To sit here and pretend not to know what else the PS4 would have besides Uncharted 4 is ludicrous. Here let me help. Especially with E3 and other game shows around the corner. Here let me help. BloodBorn MLB TheShow15 Until Dawn TearAway Unfolded Persona 5 Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Street Fighter V Rachet and Clank Redux PlanetSide 2 Deep Down Now a few of those games may get pushed back or not, but this is still 10 games from the top of my head and I'm sure there are more. And E3 has yet to happen and we know Sony has many studios working on games. It's like the joker said : "plenty of games gets delayed, nobody bat an eyelash. Uncharted 4 gets delayed, and everyone loses their minds"
@Cupid BloodBorne and SF V are the only real stand out titles there for me tbh. But remember, why are you giys guys ignoring E3? Expect 2015 games to be announced at the show.
WHAT! Noooo... I was so looking forward for this game. Maybe this means 60 FPS, that would be great.
@cupid Playing the devils advocate here, most of the games u listed there are coming out sooner then later, which like a lot of Sony fans point out about Xbox right now and its "spring exclusive drought" even though it has a handful of good exclusives out over the spring, makes for a Playstation fall exclusive drought. Microsoft has loaded the fall full of games, with what is already known not to mention if they did this year what they did last year and announce a bunch of exclusives that will launch a couple months later at E3. Most people are talking about a large hole sony needs to fill for exclusives this fall now that uncharted is pushed back. For me this just means I will wait until next year to pick up my PS4, hopefully in an uncharted bundle with a price drop to boot
Like I said during the Quantum Break article...id rather have a delayed game be good than a rushed game be a buggy mess. We've already had enough games suffer recently from being rushed (ex: Assassins Creed Unity, DriveClub, Halo Master Chief Collection, etc...)
Why do gamers always worry about games being out at every moment of the year? Don't we just want a good number of games to play every year and be damned if they come out in Spring or Winter? What's with all this "hole filling" when every console producer has holes at some point in the year? Seriously. It's just silly to see people argue about not getting games spaced out just right, or that someone has big IPs over here and not over here. Last I checked, they both have games and we're all going to get to play them at some point in time. Yay?
Woke up. seen this. slapped self to confirm i was really awake and that it wasn't a dream/nightmare. ice on face. slapped face home alone style when figured spring 16 is a year away. wrote this comment. ...is how my day went so far. God knows how worse it will get. i just hope we dont have 2014 all over again..delay after delay.
I just cant believe so many people actually thought this game was going to be 2015. I never accepted that as fact and knew that that would make that game extremely hurried
***I just cant believe so many people actually thought this game was going to be 2015. I never accepted that as fact and knew that that would make that game extremely hurried*** When they started rewriting things last year and even cut out one of the main characters from the story, I was 50/50 on it being 2015 or 2016 release. http://gamerant.com/unchart...
Few months, who cares. There is a shit ton of games coming out this year. Who didn't see this coming anyways, I personally thought it would be delayed to fall 2016. As long as the game's good. I wonder if they're releasing an uncharted collection this fall. @vishmarx lol, your first sentence , contradicts everything you said after it. Why say "noooo" if everything after that is supporting the delay.
MCC was a disaster because people were unwilling to wait? Please explain.
Well this isn't the best news but if the game needed the extra dev time then it's better to do it right than have another rushed game. It is frustrating though considering my only console is the PS4 and the games I was looking forward to this year are Bloodborne, Metal Gear Solid V and Uncharted 4. Oh well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Hope Sony gets their act together with their exclusives though.
yeah I agree day 1 patches are unethical. They steal our harddrive space just so they can release early and start making money early and it is cool they want it to be tip top at release BUT the last uncharted, uncharted 3, came out in 2010, since when does it take 6 years to make a game, let alone a linear game like uncharted? Even a masterpiece like grand theft auto doesn't take 6 years to make! wtf?? Im selling the ps4. I am not a blood borne fan and I platinumed infamous ss and the dlc. I'm not gonna keep the console for indies only. I prefer forza to drive club. So without any new infamouses or uncharted I got no reason to keep the console. I might wait until e3. Its only 3 months. But man I'm pissed. Bring back Jack Trentton please, shisho hoshida and kaz hiri are killing playstation. Quit defending sony guys or they'll keep gimping out on the exclusives.
VenomUK, you must be easily amused or play a lot of cellphone games because the game DID NOT look good. It looked like Uncharted was only getting a Definitive Edition makeover like everything else. It didnt look like the masterpiece we were expecting. I knew they would push this game because if the released that crap they showed last year, they would have tarnished their name. Looks like Sony needs a boost in the exclusives department because I haven't heard too much about the titles as well. People need to understand that it isn't even spring yet for 2015 and yet they are talking spring of 2016
is anyone really surprised by this? http://n4g.com/news/1621867... sony is able to coast and push games back because hardware is selling so well. i wonder if they will have another lackluster fall line-up of exclusives? doesn't seem to matter either way, the system will sell regardless.
So... I was just thinking.... is it possible this was delayed for Project Morpheus support? I mean it was pushed back into the release window for it.. and they're going to need a big title to help push them right at the gate.. what better title than Uncharted 4?
It's funny, coming off a year like 2014 that you would get more dislikes. I understand that Uncharted is much more popular than The Witcher IP but few ppl had a problem with its delay or delays. I assume everyone trusts ND as much as CD PROJEKT RED so I'm a tiny bit confused. Ok. So, I think ND and Sony would have done themselves a service to wait a week for Bloodborne to release before announcing this. Being that everyone is still waiting for that killer Sony app that isn't broken or underwhelming, waiting for BB may have helped soften the blow a bit. We can sit back and worry that it's b/c of past internal issues, but I don't think so. I think they are pushing hard with this game and want it to be amazing. That, and maybe they don't want to share space with CoD, Battlefront, MGS5 and possibly a huge Bethesda game. I would have been more surprised had it actually released this yr.
@Septic yea, they'll announce games that you can expect to come out in 2017 or so. How often did sony release a game same year that the announcement was made? So far 2015 doesn't look very well for Sony when it comes to exclusive. I guess...greatness awaits...and awaits....as usual.
I knew it.. good thing there is tons of new games coming Next Zelda or Rise of the tomb raider.
As long as they are not broken then let them take their time with it.
I remember you saying that. I didn't believe it at first but damn.
No i just think ND is Trolling us hard. UC4 will release Holiday 2014 or i will go ape shit and will get rid of my ps4 there be NO reason 2own it
@wcxalchemist You better go ahead and go apeshit because holiday 2014 has already past. Also, no company would troll like this. It would be bad for their game if they gave false release dates. It's not a big deal. I would rather wait for the best game possible than get a broken one
keep dreaming rise of the tomb raider is still coming this fall
I never believe it would have come out this year either. Too rushed of a dev cycle especially after all the work put into The last of us remaster. Maybe if they had given that to a different studion to remaster but even then thats a fast turnaround for your flagship franchise moving to a new console, with new architecture, and more power to use
