Neil Druckman has answers for you.
Most folks managed to stay pretty calm about the fact that 'Uncharted 4' got delayed--everyone learned an important lesson from last year's flood of unready Fall releases, methinks--but in case anyone wanted a little more insight as to why the game jumped ship to 2016, Neil Druckman has provided a pretty simple answer in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine: The ending wasn't good enough.
“Even when I’m describing the ending, it’s a pretty... Well, I guess this is a little bit of a spoil... Nah, I’m not going to say it! But there is something that happens that requires quite a bit of work for what we want it to do, and again we would have had to reduce that scope and reduce that ambition to meet that [original] deadline".
“We were weighing those choices between fans and their expectations. It was going to disappoint them to push this thing back, but this is the last chapter for Nathan Drake, so let’s give ourselves as much time as possible and go all-out for this series.”
Go forth and do good, Neil. Besides, we're pretty sure Lady Croft will take care of us in the meantime.
'Uncharted 4' hits March 18th, 2016.
