The fate of South Park: The Stick of Truth has been up in the air for a while now, what with the dissolution of THQ, but it seems that some new information has surfaced that will put fans to rest.
Speaking to Videogamer, a Ubisoft rep revealed that the game was still ‘scheduled for release in calendar 2013’. The game was originally supposed to launch sometime in this month when it was being published by THQ. However, after Ubisoft acquired the rights to the title during the THQ Auction for $3.2 million it was delayed.
Tesco currently has the game dated for release on August 23, which would coincide with Ubisoft’s summer blockbuster Splinter Cell: Blacklist, as well as Saints Row 4, Disney Infinity and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. The game is current-gen as well, so it’s pretty safe to assume they want to release it before the new consoles come out.
The Stick of Truth is a RPG based off the popular TV show South Park and being developed by Obsidian Games. South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are writing the script for the game, overseeing the project, and providing the voices of the characters.
