Looks like everyone is going to have to wait a little bit longer to play South Park: The Stick of Truth after yet another delay. Ubisoft announced today that South Park: The Stick of Truth will now release on March 4th, 2014.

Ubisoft North America President, Laurent Detoc, released the following statement:

“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. 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.”

Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creator’s of South Park, also released a statement:

“Getting the game up to the crappy standards of the show has been a real challenge and we’re excited to say it’s taken way longer than we thought it would.”

Ubsioft to soften the blow from this news have released seven minutes of gameplay to remind you it might be worth the wait.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the developers behind Fallout New Vegas and Alpha Protocol. The game was originally being published by THQ before they filed for bankruptcy and the publishing rights were purchased by Ubisoft earlier this year.

Just a nerd from the Windy City. I’m actually really bad at describing myself because I get all self-critical and self-conscious. Follow me on Twitter, @The1stMJC, to see my borderline insane rants on tv shows and other non important subjects. If I’m not tweeting I’m probably just watching Buffy or Firefly for the millionth time.

    Well…it is what it is. I really love South Park and I would get this game no matter when it came out. I’m glad they’re being conscientious and circumspect so they don’t release a turd. Apart from Mister Hanky, of COURSE! My Grand Wizard Edition is all paid-off at least.
