South Park: The Fractured But Whole Delayed To Next Fiscal Year, 2017-2018

By   /   Feb 10, 2017

South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the sequel to 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth video game, has unfortunately been delayed until the 2017-2018 fiscal year. The announcement came by Ubisoft during an earnings report by the company today. This fiscal year runs until this April on the first, to March 2018.

While it may not be a substantial delay, the announcement is still disappointing for South Park fans that were fans of the first game. The game was originally supposed to be released on December 7, but back in September was announced to be pushed back to the first quarter of 2017. Now, a further delay has pushed the game back even more, though why Ubisoft has done so hasn’t yet been determined.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole revolves around the kids of South Park playing yet another game of make-believe, this time as superheroes rather than the fantasy game that the original Stick of Truth game revolved around. With you (as the “New Kid”) becoming the newest member of the gang’s superhero crew, you find yourself caught in the middle of a “Civil War” over the plans for the group’s superhero movie franchise.

Now, armed with superpowers of your own, you, Cartman, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Butters, and all the other kids from South Park, must battle for supremacy over who is in the right over the direction to take the franchise.

The game will have a variety of new mechanics, as not only are you now able to choose the gender of the new kid (which, if you played the first game, will likely get some form of joke from everyone if you choose to be a girl), you also have the advantage of positioning and movement, which can help you maneuver enemies into vulnerable areas.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole may be delayed, but hopefully when it releases all of the various delays will be worth it for another amazing adventure with your favorite characters.
