Ubisoft has confirmed to VideoGamer earlier this week that South Park: The Stick of Truth is still on track for a 2013 release.
VideoGamer queried Ubisoft about the games current state after noticing that the title didn’t appear in Ubisoft’s allegedly most recent media update released on Monday.
A Ubisoft spokesperson responed to the query and told VG that they had no further updates on the game’s status, and that the game itself is still “scheduled for release in calendar 2013.”
Apparently this game was due for release this month, but that was back when it was still under THQ’s wing. Understandably, the game’s release has been delayed due to its acquisition by Ubisoft from THQ’s final IP auction – a purchase of $3.2 million, allegedly. The game’s status has been apparently quiet ever since its acquisition, at least until VG asked about it.
I’m not surprised that this was in the dark, because I’ve only ever heard very little of South Park: The Stick of Truth. Then again, I wasn’t exactly keeping tabs on this title.
Obsidian Entertainment, South Park: The Stick of Truth’s developer, is collaborating with South Park’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, most probably to ensure South Park: The Stick of Truth is as authentic and respectful as possible to the TV series.
I’ll be honest: I have no idea what to expect from this game. It’s sure going to be fun finding out, though.
Are you glad to year that ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ is still on schedule for a 2013 release? Let us know in the comments!
Chirps to VideoGamer. Thank you for reading, and I’ll catch you next time!
