I don't think they were ever hired to get fired so I doubt they had any choice

 

And I'm pretty sure Ubisoft never had any intentions on hiring them even if by some lucky chance they might have had enough people to throw at the project (which they obviously didn't at the time). Ubisoft is putting a lot of faith on some studio that has made "Rocksmith" and to the South Park brandname. The brand alone will sell a lot of games and well, the company can pretty much just copy as much from Obsidian as they possibly can, so maybe they won't **** it up.

I seem to recall reading that Ubisoft is only using internal groups to develop their games. South Park being done by Obsidian was only because they picked it up from THQ, but it started at Ubi it'd have been internal.  So Obsidian getting to do the sequel was never in the cards as Ubi was always going to take the license to an internal team.

Welp I hope it works out for the Southpark guys but not a lot of developers are on the level of Obsidian. If I'm really honest it actually puts me off the sequel a little bit.

i have faith in this tbh. plus they notched the battle up too. like grids and positioning that remind me of radiant historia, or one HoMM game. i was worried too it wasnt developed by obsidian would make the gameplay worse, but i think it is in a good hands

It was a good game but not one that screamed sequel, though seemingly it'll sell well enough to justify it in Ubi's eyes.

I think the gameplay will be better because they already have the ground work, I'm just hoping they can get the vibe and atmosphere of the South Park like in SoT. I really hope they don't turn that down a knotch.

I preordered the game simply because it came with a free SoT for the ps4. Figured I was going to go ahead and buy both games, might as well save a lil bit of money. It is going to be weird about the dlcs though lmao.

I'd suspect Ubisoft did OK out of it, while it took a long time a lot of that time/ money was put into it under THQ and Ubi bought it from them for only 3.2M$. On the other hand, no next gen version suggests it didn't sell well enough to justify them financing that version.

That list is probably right though, except perhaps PoE and that hasn't been out long.


Next gen versions coming out ~simultaneously with the sequel, confirmed at e3.

As far as I know, people who pre-purchased the new one are already playing the Stick of Truth ports. Obsidian even got a bunch of bug fix requests on Twitter, even though they had nothing to do with it.

Encountered lots of people who thought the new South Park game is made by Obsidian again. Obsidian not working on it doesn't seem to be that clear to everyone yet.

Thanks for clearing that up, I was thinking of picking it up myself.

I'm assuming you mean on the ps4 or Xbox one?
