South Park RPG The Stick of Truth has been delayed until March 6th, 2014, publisher Ubisoft has announced. The game had been due to launch on December 13th, after Ubisoft picked it up following the collapse of original publisher THQ.

The game, developed by Fallout: New Vegas studio Obsidian and scripted by show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, had previously been announced for release in April this year.

"When Ubisoft picked up the game, we thought: Easy," said Ubisoft communications manager Gary Steinman on the company's official blog. "We'll put some marketing muscle behind Stick of Truth, toss some additional development resources at it, then take it to the finish line with Matt Stone and Trey Parker. The game's almost done, anyways - so what more could we do? Apparently, quite a bit more."

Ubisoft North American boss Laurent Detoc also chipped in, describing how they had to "turn the game upside down" to deliver a true South Park experience, and explaining that it's more important to the publisher to get the game right than to hit the planned release date. "It's been such a major overhaul to get to the point where we are that we couldn't let it go," he said, "even if that meant missing December."

Stone and Parker have also commented on the delay, in typically sardonic fashion. "We always wanted the game to feel like you're actually in an episode of South Park," says their joint statement. "Getting the game up to the crappy standards of the show has been a real challenge and we're excited to say it's taken way longer than we thought it would."

South Park: The Stick of Truth will now launch on March 6th next year, for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There's no word on whether the delay will open the door for next generation editions of the game.
