South Park: The Fractured But Whole "Won't Be Coming to Switch," Comedy Central Clarifies

Despite a tweet earlier this week that may have hinted at it, Comedy Central confirms South Park: The Fractured But Whole will not release on the Switch.

The upcoming South Park: The Fractured But Whole will bring players back into the world of South Park for a superhero-themed adventure, while South Park Digital Studios has clarified that, unfortunately, it seems like the game won’t be making the jump to the newly-released Nintendo Switch.

Earlier this week, a tweet from the official South Park Twitter account – which depicts Cartman frozen in a blizzard with the caption “Nin-ten-do. I’m coming” – became misconstrued as a possible tease that the upcoming South Park: The Fractured But Whole would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. In reality, the tweet was merely a reference to a 2006 episode in which Cartman is trying to obtain a Nintendo Wii to tie in with the blizzard Stella that hit across the East Coast earlier this week.

Speaking with IGN, a representative from South Park Digital Studios/Comedy Central explained that The Fractured But Whole “won’t be coming to [Nintendo] Switch,” putting the idea firmly to rest that the game will arrive on the newly-released system, though developer/publisher Ubisoft declined any comment on the matter.

The game was originally targeting a release date of December 6 2016, but was then delayed to the first quarter of 2017. Since then, the game has not had a firm release date announced at this time, but is expected to arrive sometime later this year.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2017.
