South Park SOT possibly delayed to February 2014

#1 Edited by Vandal (96 posts) -

Hey guys, I have some bad news.

According to my source in Ubisoft, South Park SOT has been delayed yet again until February 2014. This information comes from the UK so maybe it's just been delayed here but I wouldn't hold out much hope for a US release this year either.

UPDATE: If that wasn't bad enough apparently now it's delayed to March.

UPDATE 2: Turns out it was true, Jeff just updated the release date to March 4th.

Why do I have a bad feeling that this game is never going to come out?

To be honest if this ends up being true i knew this game was not going to come out this year.

2014 year of Ubisoft ?

I can't find any info backing this up, but I'm inclined to believe it probably is accurate.

Did they not give a December date like 3 weeks ago? I am sure "the "Wolf" talked about it: if this is true then my god is the game in trouble.

@killercombo: They released that December date a little over a month ago.

@chaser324: From what I heard it was a complete surprise to everyone in the UK and multiple calls to head office in France were made to find out what the hell was going on. It sounds like a complete mess.

True or not giving Obsidian more time to work on something is never a bad thing. And I love Obsidian.

Of course it is.

That's not very surprising. I just hope it comes out.

This is one of those games that I'll let them take all the time they need to make sure its polished and perfect. I *NEED* this game to be awesome.

Amazon still says December 10th, so I'm going to assume your "source" is full of shit.

Fuckin' this game is totes broken, innit?

Sounds like one to stay away from. Isn't this the third time it's been delayed if this turns out to be true?

If this is true, what the hell is going on with this game? I though December 10th was a solid date, I hate to see it getting constantly delayed.

Although, I'd rather it be good than a piece of crap.

That would be disappointing, on the plus side I'd have till the beginning of March, with only two AAA games to have to worry about; Second Son and this. That would give me a nice chunk of time to work on my backlog.

#17 Posted by Vandal (96 posts) -

@general_boredom: Because release dates never change and Amazon is always the first to know. Right?

#18 Edited by Vandal (96 posts) -

@nekusakuraba: It seems the UK office thought it was a solid date until a few days ago.

I added 'possibly' to the thread title because it hasn't been officially confirmed yet. A worrying sign if it has in fact been delayed.

@mracoon: No problem, understandable as I have no proof. To be honest I hope I've been lied to, but I really doubt it.

Depending on who your source is, I don't know how serious I need to take this. But the sceptic in me tells me to expect the worst and it fucking sucks cause SoT was the last game of the year I really looked forward to playing.

Goddammit Ubisoft! Stop torturing me!

I guess I have to play Arkham Origins instead.

2014- The Year of the Delay

That's fine if true. I hope they take their time with it and give it the attention it needs. As history shows, rushing an Obsidian game to release before it is ready is a really bad idea.

I wasn't too interested in this game, so if true this isn't too devastating for me. I understand it's going to be a bummer for a lot of people though.

This is Ubisoft? Yeah it's delayed

Dude is right game got delayed.

This is getting me concerned. Everything I've heard about this game has been positive and it is motherfucking Obsidian. But a lot of delays is never a good thing.
