Stick of Truth Delayed…Again

At the beginning of October I talked about how excited I am for South Park the Stick of Truth; a game I’ve had pre-ordered for over a year.  Well over the Halloween break Ubisoft delivered some bad news, the game has been delayed until March 4, 2014.  The game will now miss that holiday launch window and we’ll have to wait another 3 months before we’ll get “head on down to South Park”.

On the Ubisoft Announcement blog Ubisoft North America’s president Laurent Detoc said “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.  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.

Normally if a game is pushed back this many times I’m worried.  But Ubisoft didn’t just push the game back; they also showed us 7 minutes of gameplay.  This removes all doubt in my mind.  The game looks exactly like an episode of South Park.  It’s hard to tell where the cutscene ends and the gameplay begins.  It’s that seamless.  I hate having to wait even longer, but I’m very excited to finally get my hands on the game.
