  1. The biggest best theory right now is Ubisoft is waiting for E3 for the big unvail. It makes some sense. Get some more best in show awards or atleast some big recognition. Personally I am getting fed up with waiting for more info. Kinda just said screw it for now and moved my money time and intrest over to defiance. Seems the better investment right now.
  2. 3 things: 1st. I hope this petition I signed goes some where. However I don't think it will. The speculation on this game and its delay has been getting increasingly negitive and Ubisoft has felt no need to do anything about it yet. 2nd. April 29th is a monday not a tuesday. I dont know why games release that way in the US but it seems to be the case. 3rd. I highly doubt this game will release this april. Between the other titles coming out this April, mostly Defiance which is making a lot of buzz. And the fact no offical word is yet out. Yeah I dont think April is the month for this game. Ubisoft would want the word out about the release to capitalize on their investment and to get people like me to re-preorder the game.
  3. I hope your right. My issue isnt that the game may take that long or longer to release. My issue is the lack of info from Ubisoft. I agree with everything you have said about this taking time and Ubisoft taking there time with it. However latly I have seen too many titles ruined by hand changing, Colonial Marines, Star Wars Battle Front 3 just to name a few. The rampant speculation needs to be qwelled. The only way to do that is to release somthing offical. Yet so far we have nothing.
  4. To be clear I am not blaming the game or Obsidian. If I am blaming anyone its Ubisoft and the Retailers that didnt at least acknowlege that there date was nolonger valid. I keep getting told that this was the way of things in november. The point I keep trying to make is that I never found that information till after febuary when the retails said the date was canceled. Most info on the net kept the March 5th date. Personally I was never aware that a retailer could put up a untrue date without legal recourse. It seems unfair that the publisher cant stop stores from posting untrue dates. All of this adds up to me being dissappointed, mostly with Ubisoft. My issues right now are simply the lack of info and rampant speculation on the status of this game. I simply want some straight forward info. I dont even need a specific date for release. I would just like to know a rough estimate. As now this game is nolonger my "pre-Defiance" time killer. As well my immersion into that game will make my desire to play this much much less depending on when its released. I just want some straight info.
  5. Yeah after making my prior post I had found some articles saying the same. However all of that is speculative maybe later this year maybe this Dec, maybe March 2014. The simple fact is till Ubi says otherwise this game is going no where. Personally I am canceling my preorder and moving it over to Defiance. If I re order the game it will be when it has a date.
  6. I can not seem to find the main article that claimed Ubi was "fixing" the game. I even pulled up my recent searches to try and find it to no avail. The article was published online on march 12th so if it was taken down this fast it must have had incorrect info. On your note about the release cant have been true, Everyone and everything I looked into when I got my pre-order in Dec said Marhc 5th was the release date. Retailers and the internet all said March5th At the point of the games sale in january I was reassured by my game stop the date was still intact. Also Bing and google Searches alike linked Amazon and other online stores All kept the March 5th date up even after March5th. This game may have been delayed back in November. However if what you say is true no one recinded the date to reflect the truth of the matter. Personally I was skeptical about this game. Every south park game promisses to be great most miss the mark. For that reason I didnt get into the game at all until the Spike VGA's. It was the world premire that they launched in DEC that really got me to look into the game. So if what you say is true and this delay is nothing at all new and infact has been in the works since Nov. I am rather pissed that no one told me that the date was false. Even more annoyed that so many online and local stores could push this date with nothing being put out to the contrary. It was my understanding with my Darksiders II insert that the game was set for Feb2013. Then when I looked into it again in dec, the dates all said march5th. And as I said earlier after the sale I was reassuered the March 5th date was intact. THQ or Ubisoft really should have tried harder to keep that false info in check. Because as this very forum proves I am not the only person who was under the impression that March 5th was the intended release date.
  7. Thankyou for you input. Firstly I started this thread as the others have gnerally gone dark or devolved into other issues over this topic. Secondly I have never heard of this delay infro from November, also inversly as I stated up untill two weeks prior to launch the games relase date was set for March 5 thusly making talk of fiscal 2014 in novmeber meaningless. So when the game retuned to this prior deadline as you say it did I was suprised. I did discuss my perorder with my game store and have work that all out thankyou. Somthing I even admitted to myself in my post. (in reflection somthing I should have just removed.) And finally who is spreading this talk of Fixing you ask? Well the interviews with Ubi to start "saying the game needs to be looked over and checked out by our studios before it ever sees the light of day" Now intitally I took that as a natural "inspect our purchase before marketing" statment. However with increasing frequency I am finding (largly net articles) that talk about Ubi using this time to "fine tune, adapt, or fix the game" These articles are where I get these impresions of ubisoft. Furthermore the number one thing I hear from everyone on most sites is " The game for all intents and purpouses is finished". This supposed fact only makes the lack of a date announcement (even a loose one like two month window) all the more puzzling. The last real info I have was over a month ago when my game stop told me the relase was canceled. I personally dont think a evalutaion and statment on the projected wait due to these new circumstances after this amount of time is unfair. Ultimatly the issue is moot and I am sorry for wasting your time. No one has any info I havent already found. I am also just going to cancel my preorder and move it over to Defiance. Opting to simply re-preorder the game when it has a release date. I would add though as some one who didnt make any move or really follow this game till the March 5th date announcement. That up till two weeks before launch THQ, Obsidian, and my local game store all said " launch date intact dont cancel your preorders" That followed with continually increasing assumptions over the games expected launch date irritated me. I am used to missed launch dates and delayed games. However this is a first where the launch date is canceled and not even a tentive one has met to replace it. But you need not worry. I shall not be making any further posts on this matter less ofcourse I have any sort of offical info to share.
  8. Does anyone know anything difinitive about when this game is coming out? Ubisoft is in no mood at all to tell anyone anything. And it seems every day when I go to look for more info about the game I just get worse projected news. I am now reading online and from game informer sources that its release date is set for anywhere between April 2013 and March 2014. I undedrstand waiting for the game, I know sometimes delays happen. However since canceling the March 5th release date two weeks before hand I have heard no new projected release date. I am really uncomfortable with a preorder that is twisting in the wind for now possibly upto well over a year. I need to know how long I am waiting. Can I cancle my pre-order for now and get a new one when the game has a release date? (probly something I should ask my gamestop.) All and all I hate Ubisoft and this action doesnt gain them any favor with me. Is it really so hard to give us any idea of when the game comes out, how long it will be delayed, and why? IF we are gonna be waiting till March 2014 why? I thought the game was done and by all accounts Obsidian did a great job. So how much "fixing" does Ubi need to do? And furthermore is this even gonna be the game I have been waiting for and anticipating if Ubi needs this much time to tune it?
  9. I Question the April release date as nothing offical has been announced and most games come out on a Tuesday. However if true about damn time. Even if it does suck massive balls as I will be very busy with defiance at that point. I personally would just love some offical word. I am sick of hersay dates and "supposed" reasons for this lawsuit between SPS and UBisoft over this game. I would ove some real actual factual info. No one is giving me that, which is my way of saying I understand your pain. But I feel stealing time and money is a bit much. If you ask me the money isnt really tied up either. Yes you dont have a game but had the game released you still wouldnt have the money. You simply paid for a game that hasnt released yet. Also as a Mass Effect fan I am used to "OOPS four more months" news a month before release. Your right all of this sucks and is worry some. However 3.2 million is a lot to pay to dive bomb a game project. At latest it will be out sometime this june. Personally I hope for all the waiting we get to go online multiplayer and not just console co-op. More then likely however its just delayed for the lawsuit, licenseing, and shoving their pos dmr into the game.
  10. I am starting to seriously wonder about the release of this game. I have preordered it and waited anxiously, but it seems now every time I check into its release the news sounds worse. First Feb, then march, then April-May, and now my Game Stops says "Hopfully mid summer.". Then to read in a interview with Ubisoft from the Canadian Finacial Post that " Some of our internal studios will be taking a look at the RPG game before it ever sees the light of day." Makes this game seem more and more of a "if" and not a "when" can I please get a answer about this lawsuit? Will this kill, free it, or freeze it? I am becoming very concerned.
