The game was developed in four years and was initially set to release in June 2016 but due to many issues was postponed. The wait is almost over and At last, the release date of the game was locked. It would hit PS4 and PC’s on 09th of August.

Many doubted about the launch of the game and even feared that it would wipe out without coming into the limelight. The legal issue between Hello team and Sky TV over the sky portion had strengthened the doubts of the game lovers. Fortunately, Hello won the tussle and made its way to the launch.
Sean Murray said when the new launch date was announced, “Making this game is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, but we are so close now, and we’re prepared to make the tough choices to get it right,” he explained, adding, “Some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards.”
Uncharted 4 also faced the same issue of continuous postponement of the release date from December to April and again to May.
Earlier this year, we saw this happen with Uncharted 4, which was pushed back from December to April, and then again to May. Wish it would release on the announced date without further delay and receive huge success.
