South Park Game Gives New Release Date… Probably.

Since original publishers THQ gave up the rights as they went out of business, French video game publisher Ubisoft have taken on Obsidian title South Park: The Stick of Truth, and have since then kept quiet on its release date (which would have been 5 March if THQ had stayed in business) now offered a more stable time period in which the game will hit shelves.

south_park_stick_of_truth_releasedate_maybeHowever, that time will still be an ambiguous one at present, with the date revealed at Ubisoft’s pre-E3 press conference yesterday (10 June) being ‘Holiday 2013′.

This will be considered as a risky scheduling by some, on account of the big-name games (such as the latest in the Call of Duty and Need for Speed franchises, along with Ubisoft’s own Watch Dogs) out at a busy time of the year, with the title also having to compete against high-profile releases that will have already occurred, such as Grand Theft Auto V, although the reasoning may be to put it near the end of the animated comedy’s 17th season, for greater exposure amongst viewers.

While shorter than the previous three trailers released for the game, and merely a keynote in Ubisoft’s presentation compared with the critically-acclaimed appearance at E3 2012, the event did give the most concrete information on South Park‘s schedule yet since coming under new publishers, possibly, as the footage ends with a joke on the Stick of Truth‘s current situation.

The minute-long newest trailer can be seen below, although if the ‘hint’ is to be believed and the game does get delayed to ‘some holiday season’, perhaps Ubisoft-sanctioned piracy is the way to go? Those unable to watch fart jokes or Assassin’s Creed 4 montages might want to give the video content below a miss:

    This game is now going to be a failure because they decided to wait this long to bring it out,why would u choose to release it at the same time that ps4 is coming out?they said they wanted to polish it up,well now hardly anyone will buy it when theyd rather buy ps4 games,ive already traded my system in & preordered ps4(along with almost everyone)then when it doesnt sell theyll say oh well we wont make anymore southpark games because noone bought it,well millions would have bought it if you didnt keep delaying the release for two years.to top it off thats when watch dogs & assasins creed is coming out,@ least those two games are for ps4 also not just ps3 & 360 like this one,wtf are u thinking ubisoft,you really dropped the ball on this one!!

    You really like that ps4 that’s gonna fail don’t you. There isntveven a concrete release date and Microsoft already has the games coming for Xbox One everyone wants. I know many gamers and while I have my xbox reordered the vast majority of gamers will be sticking with their Ps3 or 360 for quite a while. Parents are not buying their kids these systems this Christmas. 360s and wiiu’s are going to be what is available and have the most games coming. Even Sony who you seem to love with no reason plans on continuing to make games for the ps3. Im guessing your young and haven’t been around for many consoles. It will be years before the current generation is replaced in most houses.

    Fyi, I know of no one planning on buying a ps4 first day. When you posted this you couldn’t even preorder yet.
