Uncharted 4 will now release two weeks later than expected, hitting stores worldwide on May 10, Sony Computer Entertainment has announced.

The game's previous delayed release date was pegged for April 26 in the US and April 29 in the UK.

"You know, Naughty Dog is wrapping up production on Uncharted 4: A Thief's End with the game on track to go gold and into production later this month," wrote Shawn Layden, president and CEO, SCE. "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."

Layden added: "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.

"We thank you for your continued support for PlayStation."
