South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been pushed to Ubisoft’s next fiscal year, which means April 2017 to March 2018. It was originally given a release in December last year. In September last year Ubisoft announced it was delayed to the first quarter of 2017. Today, as part of Ubisoft’s earnings report, it was confirmed it’s release is now ‘scheduled for fiscal 2017-18’. There’s no more specific information on a release window right now.
Because of this delay Ubisoft has revised it’s sales forecast for the current fiscal year down a bit (from â‚¬1.6-1.67 billion to â‚¬1.45-1.5 5-1.5 billion). Ubisoft also said that the Watch Dogs 2 launch was ‘not as dynamic as expected, but momentum now positive’, and noted in more positive news that the Steep had a ‘slightly higher-than-expected performance’.
Ubi also said that the Assassin’s Creed movie is currently the seventh most successful video game adaptation despite not yet being released in China and Japan — fun trivia time: actor Toby Kebbell has been in two of the others, Warcraft and Prince of Persia, which currently sit at number one and number 3 respectively.
We’ve had ‘WHERE THE F*** IS SOUTH PARK?’ written on our editorial board for a few days, so at least we kind of have answer now. Although we really would rather play it, we were looking forwards to it.
