Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has received another release delay, says Sony – this time, of two weeks.

The publisher says that developer Naughty Dog is still "on track to go gold and into production later this month," but that "to meet the considerable worldwide demand, and to ensure that all gamers worldwide have the opportunity to play the game on day one, we have chosen to postpone the launch of the game by two weeks to allow for extra manufacturing time."

SCEA president Shawn Layden apologised to fans, admitting that the minor delay "might be disappointing, and we are sorry to have to make you wait a little longer to play Naughty Dog’s latest."

"The good news is that the game is phenomenal," said Layden, as anyone might expect him to.

Naughty Dog's anticipated adventure sequel was originally set for a 2015 release, before being delayed to "spring 2016," then specifically March 18th, then again to April 26th.

Numerous events could have played into the delays, such as the script being rewritten after the departure of directors Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond; the game returning to the motion capture studio in February, four months after it ostensibly wrapped; or the usual turmoil of trying to finish a complex game on schedule.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will now launch on May 10th, exclusively for PS4.
