According to current reports, the responsible creators behind South Park are planning a new 3D video game for the cult series. The creator Matt Stone has confirmed this in an email talking about the game being developed by an in-house studio of their own.
New South Park Game is coming soon
Today, we have got some good news for all the fans of South Park. According to a report from Bloomberg, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker signed a $900 million contract with ViacomCBS for a new 3D video game in the series.
The bottom line is that, we are dealing with one of the biggest deals in TV history, from which, on the one hand, six new South Park seasons will emerge. Additionally, “14 made-for-streaming movies” are planned that will be made available via the Paramount+ streaming service. The first South Park movie produced for Paramount+ will be released at the end of the year.
In addition, Trey Parker and Matt Stone confirmed that a new South Park game based on the weird adventures of Stan, Kenny, Kyle, and Cartman is also planned. It is also unclear when the announcement or presentation of the new title can be expected.
“One nugget of news from our colleagues on the Hollywood beat: South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are making a new video game (in addition to a whopping 14 new movies),” Bloomberg reports. “The game is under development by an in-house studio, Stone told Bloomberg’s Lucas Shaw in an email. The previous two games, both well-received role-playing games, were published by Ubisoft Entertainment SA, which did not respond to a request for comment.”
In recent years, the South Park series made two titles into the role-playing genre, including South Park: The Stick of Truth (2014) and South Park: The Freaky Tearing (2017). Both games were received very positively by both fans and critics. The fans can only hope that this quality standard can be maintained.
