South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a 2017 role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios and published by Ubisoft. The game's story takes place after the conclusion of the events in South Park: The Stick of Truth.
After the events of South Park: The Stick of Truth, the children of South Park become role-playing superheroes. However, a falling-out over Cartman's planned film franchise splinters the boys split into two groups, with some calling for a civil war to make their own franchise. The player again controls The New Kid, though they can now change his gender to female if they wish.
On June 18, 2015, Matt Stone and Trey Parker visited E3 2015 and announced that because of their "new abilities with creating games" a sequel to the Stick of Truth would be released. On June 13, 2016, during E3 2016, Parker and Stone revealed more info on the game, including a revamped combat system, story details, and a release date of December 6.
It was also revealed that anyone who purchases the game will get South Park: The Stick of Truth for free.
The game was delayed on September 15, 2016 in an announcement by Ubisoft's blog, citing the need for additional time for polishing. The game was then slated to be released Q1 2017, which runs from January 2017 to March 2017. On February 9, 2017, the game was delayed yet again to sometime during Ubisoft's fiscal year 2017, which runs from April 2017 to March 2018.
The game was generally well received by critics. Indeed, it was nominated for "Best Role Playing Game" at the 2017 Game Awards, however Persona 5 was the winner of the award.
