South Park: The Stick of Truth still coming this year

It’s OK. You can stop worrying. The truth shall reign in 2013. Well, the truth of fourth-grader Eric Cartman.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is still on track to debut later this year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, according to Publisher Ubisoft doesn’t have any new details about the title, but it still plans to release the Obsidian-developed role-playing game before the calendar flips over to 2014.

Earlier this week, Ubisoft started dating its major releases for the remainder of 2013. That includes new open-world franchise Watch Dogs, which is due out in November. The fact that the company was making concrete plans for everything except for South Park, which was originally due out on in March, had some fans concerned.

The Stick of Truth is a recent acquisition for Ubisoft. The French company picked up the publishing rights in January from collapsed gaming corporation THQ. That transition forced a delay in production.

For the unaware, South Park: The Stick of Truth is a turn-based role-playing game set in the world of Comedy Central’s long-running cartoon. It has players creating their own character to join up with Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny in a suburban-fantasy adventure.
