Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is one of the most highly anticipated upcoming PS4 releases, and the game has now suffered its second delay.

The Naughty Dog developed game was due for release on March 18th, but will now be released on April 29th here in the UK instead.

Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley of Naughty Dog revealed that the game required a little more development time:

“This is our largest Uncharted, 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 started to approach our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realised 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). 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.”

I’m sure that the game will be worth that extra little wait.
