on March 5, 2014 12:00 PM

South Park: The Stick of Truth  has been delayed in Austria and Germany due to the presence of what is being referred to as an, “unconstitutional” symbol in the game. This is referencing the Swastika, the symbol of the Nazi party, which is extremely prevalent and integral throughout the game.

“We are extremely sorry for the additional waiting time this will mean for the fans of the game,” an Ubisoft representative told CVG, “a new release date of South Park: The Stick of Truth for the German and Austrian market will be announced shortly. We invite customers who have pre-ordered the game to liaise directly with their retailers, who will keep them updated on the new release date.”

South Park: The Stick of Truth was developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Ubisoft for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 4th.
