Posting on the PlayStation Blog, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America Shawn Layden wrote, "In an effort 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."
The new release date is May 10, 2016.
Layden added in the post, "We know this news 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 -- we are fully confident that it will be worth the wait and the team at Naughty Dog is eager as ever for you to experience Nathan Drake's final adventure."
Despite the delay, fans will still get a chance to try out the game this weekend during an upcoming open beta multiplayer stress test.
