Topicstarter is not the only one, some people are confirming this in the comments.

And they don't even ask, they just refund it without waiting for you to agree.

This isn't new, is it? I got a refund last year from the first pre-order after the first delay without asking. Not sure if this is now a later batch.

Isn't this standard policy on PSN for paid up preorders which get delayed?

Blergh. I got the CE for a good price from their store.

If they cancel that I'll be sad.

Edit: Oh, is this just digital copies on the PSN store? NVM.

I don't know what's too much work about it. Stick of truth had really simple combat and the story wasn't written by them. Obsidian isn't really needed.

Considering how much Stick of Truth was delayed, you don't think it's Matt and Trey fiddling with stuff constantly? That was the rumour on the first one. No need to give it back to Obsidan, because if it's not Matt and Trey, they were to blame for the delays on the first one.

Well ask Ubisoft because this game is trapped in development limbo.

I still think the delay was so they could keep the jokes more relevant for the year it's releasing.

I know what's happened. Ubi forgot to update the unlock date on PSN after it announced the delay; those affected are being refunded as the countdown hit zero and yet they don't have access to the product for which they've paid.

Something similar happened on Steam, and it was only a few days ago that the unlock date was updated to December 31st.

I have to imagine with brexit and Trump, significant parts of the game had to be re-written. The jokes aren't funny anymore when it's happening in the real world. Or the opposite. Those two huge world changing events had to be put in the game.

Nope, they aren't going after Trump at all anymore apparently.

I guess they gotta retain all their 14 year old redditor fans.

Maybe im mistaken but didnt the development issues surrounding Stick of Truth have to do with Viacom and THQ, copyright holder issues, etc?

Alec Baldwin said the same thing about playing trump on SNL. The comedy about it normalizes the ridiculous behavior in a way because Trump completely fails to see these things as jokes. I will be very surprised if he's not mentioned in the fractured but whole at all. I hope he's not a main character, but there's gotta be some subtle digs at him for posterity's sake.

I doubt 'wrong' but I guess it's Mat and Trey wanting to get the writing and humour right game mechanics are a small part of this game people play it for the south park humour.

There's no way this is cancelled. Worst case it's not coming out until late 2017/Q1 2018. IMO.

I was hoping for a refund, opted out of the 1st refund because it was only a few month delay but this is insane.

Gotta really rethink my of preordering digital stuff, I tend to order earlier so I can set up a budget but now thinking I'll wait the weekend before from now on.


edit: not near my PS4 did they take back the free original game as well?

I think there is something buggy with that southpark engine, it may have been what was giving obsidian a hard time, mixed with matt and tre's desire to keep the humor relevant so probably a lot of rewrites and re recordings

Publishers should really learn to announce their games a few months before they come out. This is really irritating imo.
Matt and Trey are known for being perfectionists and changing things late in development, they could have predicted there would have been delays...

I'm not worried about the game, I'm really confident in Matt and Trey holding the game back as long as it's needed and Ubisoft's South Park engine has already shown it can deliver a true South Park experience.
Why can't Ubisoft just wait and announce it when it's almost ready? The marketing for this game isn't that difficult. Just make a funny clip from the game and it will go viral in no time. A brand like South Park doesn't need a year-long marketing campaign.

Whatever the reason is, I don't care how long it takes them to get this game out as long as they can get it out right.

While Stick of Truth didn't really have too much depth with the game play and replay ability, the amount of stuff they did pack in in regards to the world they've made in general was fantastic. Still funniest game I've ever played.
