South Park RPG release date tweaked to 7th March

Arriving on a disc, not a Cartman.

Obsidian's South Park: The Stick of Truth "comedy role-playing game" will be released on 7th March, publisher Ubisoft's latest release schedule revealed.

We had been preparing for 4th March, but that's a Tuesday, the day games typically launch in the US - unless they're gigantosauruses, in which case they often carry a 'global' date.

In the UK games launch on a Friday, and 7th March is a Friday.

South Park: The Stick of Truth had been due last autumn but was delayed because there was "quite a bit more" to do than Ubisoft, which rescued the game from the sinking THQ ship, had realised.

"Within three weeks after acquiring the game, we sadly realised we had to turn this thing upside down if we hoped to deliver the experience everybody wanted," said Ubisoft US boss Laurent Detoc.

"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."
