Standalone versions of Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy delisted ahead PS5 collection’s release
Digital PS4 versions now only available as a bundle
Sony Interactive Entertainment has removed the standalone PS4 versions of Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy from sale on the PlayStation Store.
Their delisting from the online marketplace coincides with Tuesday’s announcement that their PS5 remasters will be released next month.
Sony said today that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will hit PS5 on January 28, 2022, priced at $49.99/£44.99/€49.99.

Uncharted 4, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, or Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End & Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Digital Bundle owners will be able to upgrade to the PS5 version for $10/£10/€10 at launch.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End & Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Digital Bundle for PS4 is available on the PlayStation Store for $39.99/£34.99.
We’ve asked Sony why it chose to delist the less expensive, standalone versions of the PS4 games, but by doing so it has removed an avenue for players to upgrade to the PS5 versions cheaply.
Of course, players can always purchase a physical version of either PS4 game and upgrade it relatively cheaply that way, with copies of the titles available online for as little as $15/£9 when we looked.
Owners of PS4 disc copies will need to insert the original game into the PS5 each time they want to download or play the PS5 digital version.
This means PS4 game disc owners who also own the PS5 Digital Edition console won’t be able to get the PS5 version for the discounted price.
The upgrade offer isn’t open to PlayStation Plus members who claimed Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End via the subscription service.
A PC version of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which is being developed by Iron Galaxy, will be released later in 2022.
