South Park: The Stick of TruthThis is beginning to become a trend. Announced in December 2011 as South Park: The Game, it was originally set for a 2012 release. Based on a popular long running television series and developed by Obsidian, it is little wonder that the turn based RPG was highly anticipated by many. Unfortunately, they pushed its release to March 2013 with the new subtitle The Stick of Truth. With a month, a year, and a nicer sounding name, it looked like we really would get to play the South Park RPG next year. Sadly, that is no longer the case as THQ has changed the date again to Fiscal year 2014 (April-June 2013).

THQ’s President, Jason Rubin had this to say, “I believe South Park’s market opportunity is significant. It is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated titles of calendar 2013. It is also an expansive title, encompassing multiple television seasons’ worth of content. We have been working closely with the co-creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, to make sure all of the game’s content performs to the high standards of the TV show, and this takes time. THQ is committed to giving gamers no less than the rich South Park game they have been waiting for and deserve.”

A noble reason for a delay, to be sure. Hopefully, it will be worth the extra wait. Fingers crossed! We’ll be sure to report on any further changes–though if it is another delay it won’t be from me. I will be in a corner crying with a Kenny plushie.
