NEW SOUTH PARK MULTIPLAYER GAME IN DEVELOPMENT
South Park fans have good reason to celebrate as Question Games is developing a new game. The job posting for Lead-Level Designer explains that the successful candidate must have shipped at minimum one multiplayer game or have comparable experience. It will likely be developed using Unreal Engine 4 and will feature “aesthetically compelling moments” and interesting tactical options.
It is reasonable to assume that the listing is still in its early stages. Bloomberg reported that South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone had several projects under development as part of a $900 million deal with ViacomCBS Inc. Although not confirmed, any video game projects will likely be included in this lucrative deal.
The TV series is no stranger to video games, having released its first title shortly after it premiered. The game, called South Park, was a first-person shooter that featured the main characters taking on various enemies and then exiting each stage. RPGs increasingly influence modern games. South Park and South Park were released in 2014, respectively. The Fractured But Hole was released in 2017.
Question Games has two titles under its belts and is well-known for its unique approach to game design. The Magic Circle is the studio’s latest game. It features Ashley Burch as Ashley Burch, who voices its protagonist.
