SOUTH PARK: THE STICK OF TRUTH Delayed to March 2014; Ubisoft Releases 7-Minute Gameplay Trailer to Make You Angrier

     November 1, 2013


South Park: The Stick of Truth was one of my most-anticipated games of 2013, and now it’s going to have to be one of my most-anticipated games of 2014.  Ubisoft has kicked the game back to March 4, 2014.  The game was originally set for 2012, but then distributor THQ pushed it to April 2013.  Then THQ went under, and the game was picked up by Ubisoft.  They set the release for November 19th, and I was already to pick it up in a few weeks.  But now Ubisoft North America’s president Laurent Detoc says, “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.”  He continued, “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.”  So thoughtful.

To rub salt in the wound, the company released a fantastic gameplay trailer featuring over seven minutes of footage.  Hit the jump to check it out, and click here to pre-order South Park: The Stick of Truth on either the Xbox or PS3.  Hopefully, it will be worth the long wait.

    I believe it was set for like December 10th, not November 19.

    They always say this is done to ensure more time for polish so they release the best game possible, but I have to imagine it’s often moreso a case of trying to position it for the best release. The game is probably ready to print, but they ran the numbers and figured the December release wasn’t the best time. I’m pretty sure the same thing happened with Watch Dogs a few weeks ago: they probably just didn’t want it to conflict with sales of Assassin’s Creed.

    So that sucks, but at least the game looks fantastic, even though that generic music definitely does not fit.

    there’s always the chance they could just be making it backwards compatible to the newer systems
