Naughty Dog today announced that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has a new release date of April 26, 2016.

“This is our largest Uncharted game to date,” directors Neil Druckmann & Bruce Straley wrote on the Official PlayStation Blog, 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).”

This is the second release bump for Nathan Drake’s final adventure. The game was originally slated for release in fall 2015, but was previously delayed until March 2016.

In Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End,several years after his last adventure, retired fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, is forced back into the world of thieves. With the stakes much more personal, Drake embarks on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. His greatest adventure will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves.
