'South Park: The Fractured But Whole' Gets (Hopefully Final) Official Release Date
The long-awaited South Park: The Fractured But Whole video game has received what fans are hoping will be the final release date.
It was announced Wednesday that the follow-up to the popular 2014 Stick of Truth will be released Oct. 17. A new trailer also dropped.
This is welcome news, as frustrations were starting to grow with the release date being pushed back further and further. The game was originally supposed to be released last year, then in the first quarter of this year.
Game developer Ubisoft previously declined to elaborate why the role-playing game was delayed.
However, Heat Vision saw firsthand during a visit to the South Park Studio last year that the script for the game was massive and creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone wanted everything to be perfect for player experience.
South Park season 21 will premiere Aug. 23 on Comedy Central.
