While they might have opened up a little about game details, Naughty Dog has not been very keen on discussing release schedules for Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End yet. So you can understand my surprise when I found out that Walmart has revealed a shipping date for the game.
What actually happened is that reports started surfacing the internet regarding an alleged release date reveal made by Walmart on their website. According to this website, the release date that they stumbled upon was October 1, 2015.
However, digging a little deeper into the issue I have figured out that the legitimacy of this release date is less than likely. Now I am not saying that the release date of Uncharted 4 cannot be leaked, but Naughty Dog is known for keeping things the way they want when it comes to announcements etcetera.
To top that up, when I started browsing the internet for some intel on the matter I landed on the Canadian version of Walmart’s website which had yet another date of shipping.
If you go here, or see the screengrab below, you will see that this version of their website is claiming the game will be shipped on November 1, 2015.
Now, the fact that there could be a separate release date for the Canadian region cannot be ruled out completely; but in my opinion, that too is a long shot.
Ultimately, there are a lot more chances that these supposed release dates are just placeholders put up there by Walmart.
I am positive Naughty Dog is going to shrug it off to the rumor mill, but we will inquire them about the matter and get back to you with any details they might share regarding the Uncharted 4 release date.
