We now know the studio behind the new South Park video game

After a lucrative deal signed between Trey Park, Matt Stone and Paramount last summer, it was known that the band of merry kids from South park was not ready to leave the small screen. In addition to the new seasons and films announced for the cult animated series, a new video game was also mentioned in the deal… Without further information.

But a small ad posted on Twitter and reported by the Eurogamer site seems to give us some news on the identity of the team behind this title. It’s the Question studio, to which we owe the games The Magic Circle in 2016 and more recently The Blackout Club in 2019, who posted the job advertisement on Twitter having sold the wick ahead of time.

The Question studio is therefore looking for a level designer for a “new game set in the world of South Park“, With no other detail than the nature of the title. The announcement also specifies that the title is being developed on the Unreal Engine game engine and would be intended for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC consoles… thus ruling out the possibility of a new mobile game for following South Park: Phone Destroyer. No official announcement has yet been made by the American studio or by a possible publisher.

As stated on the site’s job ads page, Question studio is made up of “old AAA developers” who have worked on a plethora of renowned titles such as the saga Bioshock, Dishonored or Thief: Deadly Shadows. More interestingly, the development team also has former members who have served on South Park: The Stick of Truth and South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the last two video game adaptations of the animated series on consoles and PC.

It has now been more than 4 years since the last game South Park: The Fracture of Fate released on older generation consoles and PCs. This production from the Ubisoft San Francisco studio adapted the arc of the superheroes of the series into a joyful tactical RPG-style mess, with all the necessary fart jokes and other conventional vulgarities.
