E3 2016: Ubisoft Trailer Roundup
A few years ago, an Ubisoft executive said that the company wasn’t interested in a game if they couldn’t build a franchise out of it. It certainly looks that way from this year’s press conference where even Ubisoft’s experimental titles are getting the franchise treatments. Grow Home gets a sequel. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Trials get a cross-over game. The only Ubi game not getting a sequel is Beyond Good & Evil. But there was one new IP unveiled. It’s an extreme sports game so it might not be for everyone.
Retailers Say South Park: The Stick of Truth Releases in August
The bankruptcy of THQ put a delay on a number of games and made us question the fate of numerous games in their portfolio. Now, it looks as though the hotly anticipated South Park RPG, South Park: The Stick of Truth, appears to be hitting store shelves very soon.
According to retailers Future Shop and Best Buy, South Park: The Stick of Truth is due for release on August 27th. This hasn’t been confirmed by Ubisoft yet but that’s not surprising because Ubisoft has been very quiet about all former THQ products since buying THQ assets and IP during the bankruptcy auction.
South Park: The Stick of Truth was originally due for release in early March 2013. It might be six months late because of THQ’s issues but hopefully it allowed Obsidian some extra time (and money) to polish the game.
