South Park: The Stick of Truth
has been delayed to March 4, 2014, Ubisoft announced
today. The game will now launch on March 6, 2014 in Europe. Ubisoft acquired the game when it purchased THQ Montreal in January
, later announcing that the game would arrive this holiday season
"Within three weeks after acquiring the game, we sadly realized we had to turn this thing upside down if we hoped to deliver the experience everybody wanted," Ubisoft North America's president Laurent Detoc said in the announcement blog. "It's been such a major overhaul to get to the point where we are that we couldn't let it go, even if that meant missing December."
Ubisoft also unveiled a new gameplay trailer for the game, which clocks in at over seven minutes long.
