South Park: The Fractured But Whole was scheduled to release sometime in Quarter One of 2017 after the delay in 2016, but it seems like the game might be in trouble as Ubisoft has delayed the game once again.
This time it seems like the delay will take a little longer than expected because the new release window is between the fiscal year 2017 and 2018. Meaning that the game can be released anytime between April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
There is no reason given by Ubisoft why the game was delayed for a second time, but a Ubisoft representative said (via PC Gamer) that the development teams are committed to pushing the envelope for South Park: Fractured But Whole.
“South Park: The Fractured But Whole will now launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in FY18,” a rep said. “The teams at South Park and Ubisoft San Francisco are committed to pushing the envelope during development to deliver the best experience possible, and this additional time will allow them to do so.”
Due to the South Park delay, Ubisoft has adjusted its sales expectations for the 2016-17 fiscal year downward, from €1.61-1.67 billion ($1.72-1.78 billion) to €1.455-1.495 billion ($1.55-1.59 billion).
