New South Park game reveals its developer via a new job posting requiring a candidate to work on a new game set in the world of South Park.
It seems like South Park is one of those IP addresses that can withstand almost anything. The beloved but often controversial series has often been able to comment on current affairs almost as it occurs, with episodes only taking a few weeks to produce. South Park through the pandemic has made several specials and episodes based on COVID-19. Now, South Park seeks to further expand its roster of video games.
Announced last year, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone signed a new funding agreement with ViacomCBS, which, among others, supported the funding of a new South Park video game. South Park has already had nine video games since its debut in the late 1990s, although few have garnered as much attention as South Park: The Stick of Truth, and its sequel, South Park: the fractured but whole. The Rod of Truth was released in 2014, and was developed by RPG veterans Obsidian Entertainment, creators of The outer worlds and Fallout: New Vegas.
Obsidian has since abandoned the development process for the following South Park games, and although it was previously reported that the new game will be developed “in-house” by South Park Digital Studios, a new job posting has revealed the studio that will work alongside South Park Digital. The developer of the new South Park game will likely be Question Games, a relatively small studio previously known to the imagination and wit The magic circle.
This news comes from a job posting posted on Question Games’ official Twitter, which reveals that the developer is looking for a Lead Level Designer to “work on a new video game set in the world of South Park”, which makes very likely that the studio is working on the game which turned out to be in the works last year. While Question Games may not have a long established track record of producing games, the studio is made up of people who have worked on Dishonored, BioShock, and the two previous ones South Park games, which makes the team seem at least qualified for the job.
While details are extremely scarce on the new South Park game, hidden in the job list at Question are some interesting details, such as the need to have shipped a multiplayer game as a requirement for the position. This has led many fans to speculate that the new South Park title will make the jump to multiplayer, although only time will tell if that rings true.
A new South Park the game is known to be in development.
