Dumped into first quarter

South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been delayed, Ubisoft announced on its blog. The superhero-themed adventure game will now launch sometime in the first quarter of 2017.

"The development team wants to make sure the game experience meets the high expectations of fans and the additional time will help them achieve this goal," according to the post. A new release date hasn't been pinned down.

The game was originally set for a Dec. 6 release, which the publisher revealed at this year's E3 event. Alongside the launch date came tons of new trailers and gameplay footage for the foul-mouthed follow-up to 2014's South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Most recently, The Fractured But Whole made an unforgettable appearance at Gamescom 2016, where we invited it into our nostrils. A scented gag peripheral invented for the game, the Nosulus Rift, won't see retail release, much to the delight of the unfortunate souls who have taken a whiff of it.
