"South Park" players have yet to wait for the release date of Ubisoft's role-playing video game "South Park: The Fractured But Whole," as it gets moved to the first quarter of 2017.

According to Ubisoft's official blog, the game's release date was pushed to the first quarter of 2017, which means players can expect the game to be out in January, February, or March next year. As per the studio, the reason behind the delay of the game's release date is to provide the players' high expectations, as well as additional time for the developers to upgrade the game.

According to Engadget, the game is based from the animated television series "South Park" and serves as a sequel to 2014's "South Park: The Stick of Truth." As per the publication, this also acts as the initial appearance from show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker; however, they said that they had discovered many things from the first release.

It is added that "South Park: The Fractured But Whole" is not set to come with DLC alternatives. As per Stone and Parker, they are not pushing to yield the game's DLC from content on the "cutting-room floor." It is suggested that the creators want to extract the DLC from a solid and high-quality content. Furthermore, they are eyeing on adding extra scenes to the new game.

Overall, "South Park" is set to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows in early 2017.
