South Park might be getting on a bit, but it sounds like the Comedy Central animated series has an incredibly bright future ahead of it - a future that includes a brand-new 3D video game.
According to a new report from Bloomberg, the show's creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have struck a new deal with ViacomCBS Inc. that will pay them more than $900 million. The money will be used to make new episodes of South Park for Comedy Central, as well as a number of spinoff movies and a new 3D video game set in the world of the show.
The last two South Park games, The Stick Of Truth and Fractured But Whole, were both published by Ubisoft. It's unclear who will publish or develop this new game, but describing it as a 3D adventure would imply it won't be another RPG in the vein of the aforementioned titles.
On the one hand, that's a real shame. Ubisoft's South Park games were legitimately hilarious and also genuinely good RPGs. On the other, I'm legitimately excited to see what ridiculousness Stone and Parker can come up with in a 3D space. I certainly wouldn't mind a Mass Effect-style parody, personally. Just as long as it's nothing like the 1998 first-person shooter South Park that released for the original PlayStation and Nintendo 64. That truly was a stinker
Clearly it's very early days for this new South Park game, however, so we shouldn't expect to hear anything more about it for a while. Start dreaming up your ideal South Park game now, I guess - it just might be about to come to life.
