South Park: The Fractured But Whole is the upcoming sequel to the excellent 2014 game The Stick of Truth. Like The Stick of Truth, The Fractured But Whole has also suffered from numerous delays. Originally mean’t to be released last year, the game was pushed back to Spring of 2017 but was then delayed again to an unspecified date.
PlayStation gamers who had pre-ordered the game have now been reporting that they’ve been receiving emails from Sony saying their pre-order has been cancelled and that their money has been refunded. Those who pre-ordered the game digitally were able to download and play the original game. To soften the blow, Sony has allowed those who pre-ordered to keep their copy of The Stick of Truth.
As reported by The Wolf Hall, a user uploaded this picture of an email sent to him/her by Sony.
Many users on a thread on the Reddit PlayStation 4 board are reporting the same.
It’s always disappointing when a game gets delayed, especially when it’s delayed numerous times, but ultimately all that matters is the quality of said game. South Park: The Stick of Truth was delayed many times but was critically acclaimed upon release. Here’s hoping The Fractured But Whole is worth the wait.
