South Park: The Stick Of Truth Delayed Again, This Time By Three Months

"We Had To Turn This Thing Upside-Down"

South Park: The Stick Of Truth is no longer coming out this year, with Ubisoft pushing the anticipated Obsidian-developed RPG back into Spring 2014. The publisher claims that the project  required an "overhaul" when they acquired it from THQ, which has led to numerous delays.

Ubisoft confirms that The Stick Of Truth will now release on March 4th, 2014.

"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,” says Ubisoft North America’s president Laurent Detoc. “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.”

“We always wanted the game to feel like you’re actually in an episode of South Park," said South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. "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.”

So, March 4th. Maybe. I still wouldn't hold my breath, frankly.

They could bring it out for next gen without pushing it back.

I imagine they're just a bit overloaded with work at the moment. Watch Dogs and Black Flag both look great, but both seem to be stretching them thin. Taking on half-finished jobs from other studios is good in terms of having new IPs but bad in terms of easing your workload.

I've got faith in Ubi (despite their appalling flim-flamming over the Wii U 6-12 months ago).
