We’re sure that there are many South Park fans out there who are eager to get their hands on the South Park MMO, The Stick of Truth. The game was originally pegged for a released in March 2013, but in a recent statement released by THQ, it seems that the game has been delayed by an additional two months, pegging it for a release in May 2013, assuming there are no more delays in the process of course. According to THQ, the reason behind the delay is basically the same spiel that companies give when they delay their releases, which is to provide more time to its developers to help polish the game further and make it a great product for the masses to enjoy.
I believe South Park’s market opportunity is significant. It is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated titles of calendar 2013. It is also an expansive title, encompassing multiple television seasons’ worth of content. We have been working closely with the co-creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, to make sure all of the game’s content performs to the high standards of the TV show, and this takes time. THQ is committed to giving gamers no less than the rich South Park game they have been waiting for and deserve.
In any case we guess having a game delayed is better than having a game released early and have it filled with bugs and whatnot, right?
