Stolen Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End have been around for a while now and news of spoilers are coming daily to both the press and Naughty Dog itself. The Californian developer has not reacted too good to these news, and has shown especially sadness about what’s going on since it could possibly harm people’s chances to have a great experience with the game’s story.
Creative director Neil Druckmann has suggested players to “stay vigilant” since it’s harder and harder to “control leaks” as we get closer to the official release date
On the other hand, writer Josh Scherr has express the desire to see people enjoying Uncharted 4’s story as much as playtesters have done during the last stages of development.
3D environment artist Anthony Vaccaro has also expressed his sadness about what’s happening lately, in particularly talking about not only about those guys who are playing the game before it releases, but especially about who is “actively spoiling” it to the community.
WWS SCEA Senior Producer said as well this kind of behaviour simply “sucks” as the studio feels “miserable” while watching people trying to spoil Uncharted 4 to gamers who have not played it yet.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End releases on May 10. We’re almost there.
Uncharted 4 is just two weeks away! As we get closer it’ll get harder and harder to control leaks. Stay vigilant. Big surprises in store.

We’re all just hoping that the people who will be playing the game have the same chance to experience it fresh like our playtesters did.

Extremely sad seeing people actively spoiling Uncharted 4 for people by posting things online from unintended/stolen early copies 🙁

I can’t tell you how miserable we feel watching people try to spoil the experience of playing #Uncharted4 for the first time. Really sucks!
