Gamers on the fence about buying a PS4 for exclusive titles may want to wait a little bit longer. One of Sony’s highly anticipated exclusives, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, has been pushed out to launch in spring 2016.

Naughty Dog, the studio responsible for the game’s development, has attributed the delay to additional quality control standards.  Neil Druckmann, one of the Uncharted series’ directors, stated that “this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned.” As a result, Druckmann goes on to say that “the game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for.”

While fans may initially be disappointed about today’s announcement, Naughty Dog’s decision to preserve the game’s quality through implementing higher standards of quality control will benefit the overall success of the game in the long run.
