If you're itching to experience what has been described as Nathan Drake's final chapter, you'll have to sit tight for just a little bit longer. Developer Naughty Dog has announced another delay for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, this time pushing it back from March 18th to April 26th in the US, April 27th across Europe and April 29th in the UK. The extra few weeks, according to creative director Neil Druckmann and game director Bruce Straley, are needed to give "several key sequences" more polish.

"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."

Uncharted 4 is one of the PlayStation 4's biggest titles for 2016, and has been slowly teased over the last year or so with a few trailers and the remastered Nathan Drake collection. We've seen the treasure hunter take out scores of goons in the jungle, dangle from the side of a bridge and encounter Nadine Ross, a new villain for the fourth instalment. Naughty Dog has also shown us one of the game's branching dialog sequences, a first for the series, and teased the multiplayer suite with a frenetic beta. The game certainly looks impressive -- however, previous Uncharted games have set an absurdly high bar, so it's no surprise the developer needs a smidge more time to give Drake the send-off he deserves.
