South Park RPG delayed again
The Stick of Truth now scheduled to launch on March 4, 2014.
The Obsidian Entertainment-developed South Park: The Stick of Truth has been delayed again. Ubisoft announced today that the role-playing game is now scheduled to release on March 4, a year after its original release date, and three months later than its previous December 10 launch date.
Ubisoft purchased South Park: The Stick of Truth for $3.2 million in January as part of the THQ bankruptcy auction. The company said today that when it bought the game, it was nearly complete. However, it turned out more work was actually needed.
"Within three weeks after acquiring the game, we sadly realized we had to turn this thing upside down if we hoped to deliver the experience everybody wanted," Ubisoft North America president Laurent Detoc said. "It's been such a major overhaul to get to the point where we are that we couldn't let it go, even if that meant missing December."
South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker agreed.
"We always wanted the game to feel like you're actually in an episode of South Park," the pair said in a statement. "Getting the game up to the crappy standards of the show has been a real challenge and we're excited to say it's taken way longer than we thought it would."
