South Park: The Game moved to 2013

Publisher THQ has moved the release of South Park: The Game to Q1 2013.

The game, which Obsidian Entertainment is developing, was originally scheduled for this year. THQ gave no reason for the delay, although the issue may be rooted in the troubled state of the company.

Rumor suggests that the RPG will be called "South Park: The Stick of Truth." It's expected to ship in THQ's fourth fiscal quarter, which begins January 1, 2013.
