The eagerly anticipated new south park game which was scheduled to come out sometime in December has now been delayed to Q1 2017 according to the Ubisoft blog. The reasoning behind it was for quality purposes. The usual “the team needs more time, to meet expectations of fans.”
In the end it may not be a bad thing the game is delayed. With so many big titles (Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4) coming out this holiday season competing for customers wallets the game may fair better in the early months of 2017. Best to have a well polished game and take the hit of a delay, than release a sub par title during the holidays that quickly gets forgotten. South Park fans will just have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the Fractured But Whole.
