South Park: The Stick Of Truth Apparently Delayed In Germany & Austria

Contains an unconstitutional symbol.

It looks like that German and Austrian version of South Park: The Stick Of Truth will face a further delay, at least according to a message received by one Steam user who went to get the game through the service.

“We’re sorry to inform you that we are unable to deliver your pre-ordered version of South Park: The Stick of Truth on March 6th as initially planned. The German and Austrian version of South Park: The Stick of Truth contains an unconstitutional symbol which means that we are unfortunately not able to release the game on the German and Austrian market at this time. This concerns all versions/platforms of the game. There is no need to amend or cancel your pre-order. A new release date of South Park: The Stick of Truth for the German and Austrian market will be announced shortly, and we will ensure that your order is delivered to coincide with this new date.

We are extremely sorry for the additional waiting time, and thank you for your understanding.”

It is likely that the “unconstitutional symbol” is the swastika, the symbol of the Nazi party that is banned in both Germany and Austria. The rumour is that the discs pressed for this market used the code for other markets which do contain the symbol. This has meant a recall of the mis-pressed discs as Ubisoft look to rectify the situation. Hopefully the delay isn’t too long.
