The project went through several delays in addition to a publisher change. THQ was the initial distributor of the game before having to file for bankruptcy. The rights were sold to the aforesaid Ubisoft. “South Park: The Stick of Truth” was originally set to launch in March of 2013 before being postponed to Dec. of the same year. It was subsequently delayed once again to March of this year.

However, it appears that the development team at Obsidian Entertainment has resolved the development issues as the software product has now gone “gold.” As a result, Ubisoft can start to manufacturer retail discs and ship the video game to retailers in time for the release date of March 4th.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the masterminds behind the “South Park” television series, approached Obsidian Entertainment to work on a licensed game for the brand several years ago. The development studio is best known for creating role-playing games such as “Alpha Protocol,” “Fallout: New Vegas” and “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.” You can find some “South Park: The Stick of Truth” screenshots with the slideshow to the left of the article.
