Nathan Drake will most likely be upon us in the first few months of 2016. This news comes to us from a financial document which, on slides 10 and 11, show both third party and first party push’s for late 2015 and first quarter 2016. Now, truth be told, I don’t fully get how they broke this down as we only see slides, and don’t have the full context of what the speaker would be saying. This does look like a highly possible release date however, as Sony’s fiscal year end date is on March 31.
When Uncharted 4 was pushed back, I was at first down on the situation. Games being delayed have become such a norm in the industry it felt like the hype train had claimed another victim. After listening to a few podcasts/shows, such as Jim Sterlings Jimquisition, and the Colin & Greg live show from Kinda funny, my opinions changed. “If a good developer is pushing back on a release date for polish” I am paraphrasing here “then there is likely going to be improvements on the game, not detriments. That or its gone so far off the rails it lands in Duke Nukem type waters”
So while we wait for Uncharted 4, and whatever will be discussed at E3, lets hunker down with our Witchers, our Destiny, and our Dragon Age Inquisitions (now with DLC on the PS4) for gameplay, and this video of Nathan Drake saying no 100 times to tide us over.
