UPDATE: In a statement issued by PlayStation to MCV, the copies of Uncharted 4 that came available to CeX were from the result of a ‘violent assault‘, where a lorry containing copies of Uncharted 4 were stolen in the UK. Stock of Uncharted 4 has yet to officially ship according to the PlayStation spokesperson and that CeX have not actually broken the street date, due to their policy to sell on any games that they have sold to them by customers. The official release date for Uncharted 4 remains May 10th and Sony working with the police in order to find the perpetrators of the lorry robbery.
In pictures given to VideoGamer by an individual known as Shabz, it seems that UK retailer CeX has broken the street date for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The game isn’t officially available for another two weeks, but some smaller stores have started to sell Naughty Dog’s new adventure epic that little bit early.
This is on top of other reports which state that pre-orders from Amazon Germany and Amazon US have begun to ship, as well as similar physical copies to the one Shabz acquired, appearing on eBay. According to Shabz, the single player is all operational, but multiplayer and trophy support is currently offline. The DLC code for the Day 1 Edition is also unavailable to download, possibly hinting that Sony hasn’t turned the servers on, even for press who are reviewing the game.
Today is actually Uncharted 4‘s initial release date in the US, but Naughty Dog actually delayed the game for an extra two weeks to make sure their latest chapter in Nathan Drake’s life would release worldwide across all territories. Some people clearly never got the memo and you’ll no doubt see Uncharted 4 spoilers and videos filtering out over the next two weeks, so hide away if you don’t want to be spoiled.
