South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be coming out on October 17, Ubisoft has announced this morning.
Ubisoft has already pushed back Fractured But Whole a couple of times: it was first due for release in December last year, only to get bumped back to the first quarter of 2017. A Ubisoft financial filing then revealed the game would be released in the 2017-18 fiscal year (starting April 1 for Ubisoft), which was clarified further today as being October 17.
So fingers crossed this is the last bump. The middle of October isn't a bad time - it's just before the major blockbuster FPS releases like Call of Duty and Battlefront, and hopefully gives the developers enough breathing room to fix up everything required.
Also gives people plenty of time to replay The Stick of Truth, which was excellent and should be played by all.
Here's the bad news. South Park. The Stick of Truth is still full of bugs. In fact, yesterday, after patching Obsidian's latest role-playing game and jumping back in for the first time since early March, I discovered a new one. Cartman's walking animation stopped working, leading to some hilarious moments as I dragged an inert, zombie-like fat kid around the town of South Park, trying to get his feet moving again.
