Ubisoft issues South Park, THQ Montreal statement: new IP confirmed

Ubisoft won big at the THQ auction this week, snapping up South Park: The Stick of Truth and THQ Montreal. The publisher has now issued a full statement on the matter, that confirms THQ Montreal's development of an unannounced new IP, which could be Patrice Désilets new title '1666', or a game known as 'Underdog.

The statement was sent to VG247 this morning, and reads, "In addition to the team at THQ Montreal, Ubisoft also acquired a new, yet-to-be announced IP in development at the studio. THQ Montreal will join Ubisoft’s development teams, already the second-largest in-house development staff in the world with 26 studios in 19 countries and more than 6,250 people dedicated to video game production."

On South Park: The Stick of Truth, the statement simply adds, "South Park: The Stick of Truth is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind Fallout: New Vegas, and is scheduled for release in calendar 2013."
