Uncharted 4 was delayed, but it looks like fans are getting a consolation prize.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection showed up on the mobile version of the PlayStation Store, as IGN originally reported. Afterward, Uncharted creative director Neil Druckman sent out the following Tweet:
Well… that hit a few hours too early. See you in the AM. G'night y'all.

Now, the official trailer is out, which you can watch below. It confirms that the collection will include all of the games in the PlayStation 3 trilogy: Drake’s Fortune, Among Thieves, and Drake’s Deception. The Nathan Drake Collection will come out on PlayStation 4 on Oct. 9.
A PS4 collection of the Uncharted trilogy, which originally came out on the PlayStation 3, has been rumored for some time. It honestly kind of seems like an inevitability. Sony and Microsoft have been working on bringing over their most popular games, like God of War III and Gears of War, to their new systems. The Last of Us, another PS3 title by Uncharted developer Naughty Dog, saw a PS4 release last year.
Microsoft also released Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One last year. It makes sense for Sony to counter with a collection of what is arguably its most popular character right now, Nathan Drake.
This also gives fans something to play while they wait for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which was originally supposed to come out this holiday season but was delayed to 2016.
