South Park: The Fractured but Whole has been delayed for the second time. Originally due out in December 2016, the game was pushed back to be released in the first quarter of 2017. Late last week we found out through Ubisoft’s earnings report, the game is going to be delayed again, this time into the company’s fiscal year of 2017-2018. This means the game could be out as early as April 2017 or as late as March 2018 (pending another delay).
The company also mentioned the launch for Watch Dogs 2 was “not as dynamic as expected,” but that “momentum [is] now positive” for the game. Ubisoft also mentioned the extreme sports game Steep enjoyed “slightly higher-than-expected performance” however, the company did not share any specific numbers for either game.
Ubisoft’s sales amounted to $564.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, which is down 5.7 percent from the $598.8 million that it recorded last year.
Ubisoft revised its full-year sales forecast downward partly due to the South Park delay. The company is now expected full-year sales to be between $1.54 billion to $1.59 billion, compared to the previously announced range of $1.7 billion to $1.78 billion.
