Sticking point: South Park The Stick of Truth delayed to March 2014

The guy with the flaming sword stands no chance against that kid doing the worm.

Alas, the December release date for South Park: The Stick of Truth is no more. The Obsidian-developed RPG (formerly under the publishing guidance of THQ, now Ubisoft) has been delayed until March 2014. This follows Ubisoft’s decision to delay Watch Dogs to a similar period.

The only explanation offered comes from show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, who say “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.” Which is … actually one of the better statements about the delay to a game I’ve read.

Don’t worry though, Ubisoft is priming one of their traditional PR campaigns consisting of 5,000,000 trailers from the game. Here’s one of them now, featuring a trip to the Giggling Donkey and some honest to goodness¬†South Park: The Stick of Truth gameplay.
