It would appear that a criminal investigation is underway in regards to stolen copies of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in the UK. Sony President Shuhei Yoshida took to the PlayStation Blog to address the situation stating that a few undisclosed number of copies of the game were stolen while in transit and the company is working with the police to resolve the matter at hand.
Shuhei Yoshida also cautions players in regards to copies of Uncharted 4 already being out in the wild, “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”, Yoshida states.
“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 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.”
