A year after its release, South Park: The Stick of Truth developer Obsidian Entertainment is looking into the possibility creating more content for the game, but don’t get your hope up.
Speaking with Polygon, Obsidian boss Feargus Urquhart said he believes that Ubisoft is “done” with South Park: The Stick of Truth despite the potential for more story related DLC.
“I don’t know what [the DLC] could be,” he said. “We had always talked about it, extending the story through DLC, it was just stuff on paper, but it never went beyond talking about it.
“That was when THQ was involved. When it moved to Ubisoft, there was more pressure to get [the game] done. I think that became the priority, so we got it done.”
Development of the game at South Park Digital Studios had a bit of back luck at the start when Viacom backed out of publishing due to trying to sell Harmonix.
The publishing rights were picked up by THQ, which went bust, putting the South Park title on the market for Ubisoft to snatch up for “15 to 20 cents on the dollar.”
Crunch time commenced for Obsidian and South Parks’ Matt Stone started coming in “every day” to work “on the project.”
“The South Park team did an immense amount of work on the game,” said Urquhart. “After all of the stress of the game getting done and changing publishers, I think everyone sort of needed a hug.”
With a nice long break from the game, Obsidian is now pondering the possibility of creating more DLC. Whether or not Ubisoft bites remains to be seen.
