In perhaps one of the bigger surprises in recent memory, it appears that South Park is going to be getting a full retail title released in the second half of 2012 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. While we already knew that the XBLA-exclusive South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge is arriving soon, we had no knowledge that another South Park video game was in development.
The developers of Fallout: New Vegas, Obsidian, will be working on the title while THQ is handling the publishing. Currently the game is being called South Park: The Game and is being described as an RPG set in the South Park world. As you can see by the exclusive cover of next month’s Game Informer, this title already looks amazing. Expect to learn much more next month when the issue is released.
