South Park: The Fractured But Whole – Delayed… Again…

Goddammit Kyle!

South Park: The Fractured But Whole, pause for laughter, has yet again been delayed.

It was only last September when publisher Ubisoft moved the game from its scheduled December 2016 release window to early 2017. However the company’s recently released third-quarter sales results, suggest the game has been moved back once again.

Now set for a vague 2017-2018 fiscal year release window, we could be seeing the game from anytime between April 1st of this year to March 31st of 2018. However! Given we’re in what would have been its release window right now, suggesting the game is near enough done, I would expect Ubisoft to be a tad more specific about the date. Ubi has also adjusted its sales expecations for the 2016-2017 fiscal year downward, from €1.61-1.67 billion (a butt load of money) to €1.455-1.495 billion (still a butt load of money), partly due to the South Park delay.

While no reason has been given for the delay, Ubisoft has issued a statement sadly confirming thepostponement. “South Park: The Fractured But Whole will now launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in FY18,” a representative said. “The teams at South Park and Ubisoft San Francisco are committed to pushing the envelope during development to deliver the best experience possible, and this additional time will allow them to do so.” Which is great! More time to polish a game is never a bad thing, as Shigeru Miyamoto wisely said “A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever.” A wise man indeed.

 

Where you looking forward to playing South Park: The Fractured But Whole within the next few months? How does the delay make you feel, don’t go too deep; I’m not your therapist.
