Because something probably came up in last minute testing and instead of doing a last-minute buff/debuff to Gragas (a la Udyr) only to have to re-balance later, Riot probably decided to hold off on releasing it to make sure it passed QA alright.

I for one am glad they help out on releasing the new champ so they could have him balenced out. Now im just hoping the next new champ is a mage

We've put him on free so people don't have a reason to buy him in case they weren't expecting the changes. To people who bought him a while ago, I would say that they have had a lot of time to enjoy the character, and everyone who plays League of Legends knows we are constantly tweaking to improve the game. We just wanted to minimize the number of people who buy Twisted Fate on one day and he is different on the next.

Does this mean the extensive TF remake will be coming soon? If not, I'm not sure how much longer the playerbase will tolerate the widespread use of TF in his current (very overpowered) state.

Not that there's much we can do about it... but I'm sure there'll be some pretty angry forum crying if TF is free for 3+ weeks straight.
