Naughty Dog has already teased us with a short teaser trailer for the next Uncharted game, but as always they have shrouded the game in mystery, not only with the story of the new game from the series, but also as to its release date. There had been speculation as to 2014 or 2015, with many fans hoping that it would be the latter.
We suggested a few weeks back that a 2014 release for Uncharted 4 was out of the question, but a new rumor had suggested the opposite. It’s no surprise that one or two retailers had a placeholder date for the game, which was a pre-order date of November 2014, and a release of December 2014.
However, it’s now been reported that they have now changed this and have moved the date to December 2015, and we have to wonder why? The retailer in question is Amazon, and you have to understand that they must have heard something to show a delayed release for Uncharted 4.
We would be naive to think that Amazon does not contact publishers, and so this makes us think that they have some sort of insider knowledge. If this is the case, then it would seem we were correct after all, although we have to wonder why Naughty Dog would wish to release a teaser trailer so early on if they don’t plan to release it until a couple of years after the first trailer was aired?
Retailers set tentative release dates all the time and so Uncharted 4 could still be released later this year, and while we do hope so just to see how Nathan Drake looks on the PS4, we still feel as though 2015 is more likely.
Speaking of Nathan, there have been rumors that he might not be in the next Uncharted title, but this has angered so many fans who are faithful to the game.
