South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been pushed back into 2017.

In a blog post today, Ubisoft announced it has delayed South Park: The Fractured But Whole into early 2017. The sequel to 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth was originally slated to release on December 6, and was widely considered one of the most anticipated games of this holiday season.

Ubisoft says that the delay will help make sure that that anticipation doesn’t give way to disappointment. “South Park: The Fractured But Whole has received an incredible response from fans around the world over the past months and the development team wants to make sure the game experience meets their high expectations. The additional time will help them achieve this goal.”

The new Q1 2017 release date means that we could see South Park: The Fractured But Whole as early as January 1, or as late as March 31. Around here, we’re hoping that Ubi has decided to use this extra time to pack in the Nosulus Rift so you can enjoy the smell of your own farts in-game.
