“Oh my God! They killed my release date! You Bastards!”

South Park: The Fractured But Whole, originally slated to launch this December, has been pushed back into early 2017, according to a new blog post from Ubisoft.

“The development team wants to make sure the game experience meets the high expectations of fans and the additional time will help them achieve this goal,” Ubisoft said in the post.

The new release window falls somewhere in between January and March of next year, but no specific date has been given.

South Park: The Fractured but Whole is the sequel to the tremendously popular South Park: The Stick of Truth, an ode to Japanese RPG’s of old that retains the crude and foul humor of the long-running Comedy Central animated show.

The Fractured but Whole takes inspiration from Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem but, in a move that’s entirely South Park, implements farts and other obscene gestures into gameplay mechanics.

Should we hear of an official release date we will make sure to post an update, so stick with Gamer Assault Weekly.
