Just as we have seen with the Tomb Raiderreboot, the newly entitled South Park: The Stick of Truthhas been named yet another video game title this year that has been pushed to 2013. This news comes from the game’s publisher THQ who recently released this information in their fiscal report.
Originally slated for a late 2012 release, this news of the highly anticipated RPG from Obsidian Entertainment comes as real bummer – and right before E3. I was really hoping to see something from this game and I’m crossing my fingers that I still will. With this recent announcement, doubts have begun swirling in my head as to how complete the game is.
Like the Tomb Raiderreboot, I wouldn’t want to get my hopes up and play a rushed game. I’m glad that this push to 2013 has happened. Seeing this come on a fiscal report though makes me wonder if this was more of an issue of money. Either way, this gives Obsidian some extra time to really polish the game.
There hasn’t been too much information, images, or footage shown of the game yet, but I’m anxious to see something soon that will blow me away. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a South Parkgame and a lot has happened to our friends in their quiet mountain town.
With as many seasons as they have under their belt, Matt Stone and Trey Parker had to have been a huge resource to make South Park: The Stick of Truth the best game ever. The big question is, how much of the mythology behind the series will be injected into the game. All I know is, they better deliver the same hard-hitting satire and social commentary as they do in the show.
South Park: The Stick of Truthhas no official release date, but expect to see it on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
