Sony has been trying to put out a movie based on the Uncharted video game for quite a while now, but unfortunately the movie has been plagued with various delays as directors have come and gone in rapid succession. The movie, which was originally pegged for 2020, was later delayed to 2021, but now it looks like we have another delay on our hands.
Sony has confirmed that Uncharted will no longer be making its July 16, 2021 release date. Instead, the company will be pushing the release of the movie to February 11, 2022. This means that for fans of the series who can’t wait to see a live action movie, they’ll have to wait a little over a year.
It is unclear why the movie has been delayed, but there is more than a good chance that the COVID-19 pandemic might have had a role to play in this. The pandemic has forced many production companies to shut down and temporarily halt their activities. Also, the various travel restrictions in place mean that for movies that are looking to film in other countries will either need to find an alternative solution or wait for borders to reopen again.
It is a bit of a pity given how many years the movie has been in the making, but we suppose it cannot be helped.
