For a while there, The Fractured But Delayed
seemed like a better name for South Park: The Fractured But Whole
, the follow-up to 2014's South Park: The Stick of Truth
. It seems like a faraway dream that this game was going to launch in 2016 at some point in time.
Then it was delayed to early 2017
. Then it was delayed again
to fiscal year 2017, which concerned players because Ubisoft's fiscal year for 2017 runs all the way until March 2018.
Now here we are. The official — and hopefully the final — release date is October 17th. As always, Ubisoft has given us a new trailer for our troubles:
As a quick reminder, players can still get the current-gen version of South Park: The Stick of Truth
for purchasing The Fractured But Whole
. That offer will end on January 18th, 2018. Anyone who pre-orders will receive the heavily-medicated Towelie: Your Gaming Bud, a sidekick of sorts who will "provide helpful and hilarious advice and commentary to players at key locations throughout the game."
