Uncharted 4 Update

We have some unfortunate news to report that a number of copies of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End were stolen while in transit. While we are continuing to work with the police to resolve the matter — which is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation — it appears that a few copies of the game have surfaced in the UK.

We know that very many of you have been looking forward with great anticipation and excitement to the latest masterpiece from Naughty Dog. From what I have played of Nathan Drake’s latest adventure, I can tell you that it is very much worth the wait. As with most Naughty Dog games, the unfolding story is such an integral part of the experience and for this reason we wanted to warn you to beware of the potential for spoilers to be posted by people with access to stolen copies of the game.

An extremely talented team has worked long and hard to bring Nathan Drake’s greatest adventure to life and we would urge you to help us prevent this from being spoiled by not purchasing copies of the game ahead of the launch date. Please rest assured we will be very vigilant to protect you from this as far as we can so you can enjoy Uncharted 4’s experience to its fullest on May 10.

  • Fairly certain PS can easily find out who loads the game early. But they will choose not to do anything about it. This basically condones what was done.

    Also, i’m not too worried about spoilers since I will be waiting for a price drop anyways. I wont pay $80 for a game.

    And none of what I wrote here will be read by Shuhei Yoshida anyways, so…..

  • Can’t wit for may 10th

  • How many copies have to stolen for Sony to notice and let us know?

  • A Thief’s End!.. The Irony haha.

  • I do not know if this is legal-wise applicable but Sony can announce PSN account(s) who acquire even a single Uncharted4 trophy before launch date will be subject to permanent ban. Maybe this makes it harder for thieves to sell those copies they have.

    Why oh why does this happen all the time these theives or online sites and retail shops should be hugely fined for playing games before release date spoils it for everyone now will get tell tale people telling all about the ending and other stuff absolulute joke

  • Serves Naughtydog right for trying to do a worldwide release!!! You think these foreign countries give a damn about coveted release dates or intellectual property???!!! Hell no they don’t and that’s why games get pirated overseas all the time. Now U.S. Fans are compromised to enjoy a Game of the Year for foreign punks to go and ruin it all. Stay off my servers U.K jerk-offs!!!!

  • Damn…if thats really true guess people were desperate for UC4 or thieves got word of the excitement for it and went to stole it seeking to sold them afterwards haha.Anyway guess I should thank you Shu for the warning…do not want any spoilers from UC4 as I didn’t even watched the last videos released by ND.I would be extra careful with the internet anyway because there are always those who get the game early and wanna show that to everyone.But guess now I should be double extra careful lol.

  • Now, that’s what I call a Thief’s End …

  • It’s real out there lol. Thankfully I can avoid spoilers, heck I avoided having the Last of Us from being spoiled and that game has been out. The media wouldn’t shut up about it and I went into a total blackout. 2 weeks should be no problem.

  • Lmao, how ironic – A Thief’s End :P

  • The warning is appreciated. I know I’m leaving myself open to “fan boy” comments, but it’s truly sad knowing some of the blood, sweat, and tears that went into Uncharted 4 will be unrewarded. Hopefully this injustice won’t go un-punished. Uncharted 4 will be without a doubt worth every penny it makes if not more.

    BEYOND/KINDA!

  • They should release the game early, not only about this article, but i am surprised they did not address the report in london that retail stores sold the game early because they got confused about the initial release date Apr. 26th, and also Amazon also mailing out copies early.

  • Oo_ThePoor_oO

    “not purchasing copies” How many of them? 10 – 100 not big deal- 1000000 yes it is!! we purchased the game months months ago and we didnt even get a chance to play the beta!!!! :( you should email or open the beta for these who purchased the game “pre order”

    just give us something at least this coming up weekend (( I really hate it from waiting and just watching youtube :(

  • There’s something of a poetic irony when a game about thieves gets stolen.

  • Reverseshift

    Copies stolen in transit? LOL.

    But seriously, thanks for the heads up. I absolutely hate spoilers and Nate is one of my favorite vg characters. Nobody’s ruining this for me.

  • The Irony though

  • I had a few questions regarding the preorders and related subjects. is the theme exclusive to the digital deluxe edition or will it become available separately after launch?
    what exactly is the “desert customization” thing that comes with the digital edition? and can that be acquired/purchased seperately? I ask because I am getting the libertalia edition that I really don’t want to part with, but I would also like the additional content for a fuller experience so that I am not missing out on anything. I ask on this post because it is the most recent post regarding the game lol.

    A Thief’s End well they got that right “A Thief ended” up with a crap load of games but the thief may end up in jail? So he may be “chartering” himself right straight into the Pokey but not Be “4” he himself has played the game LOL
