Question: The studio behind the co-op horror game The Blackout Club, “Set in the World of South Park” is hiring a lead level designer for a new game. Although the studio includes team members who have worked on previous South Park games, The Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole (as well as the bioshock series, Dishonored, and Thief: Deadly Shadows), it looks like this will be the next South. There will be no park game. Become another single player RPG.
The job description calls for the experience of sending a multiplayer game, and mentions the creation of “Levels Chalk filled with emotionally powerful moments and interesting strategy choices” between responsibilities. After making a game before that which did some interesting things with the multiplayer, the question would be a solid choice for this game which is not only South Park Battle Royale or whatever. Fingers crossed.
The creators of South Park signed a deal with Viacom worth more than $ 900 million, according to a Bloomberg story last year, which said some of the money was being spent on video games. However, he also suggested that the game be developed internally through an in-house studio, so until those plans change, two games from South Park are working.
The Viacom deal includes not only South Park’s six more seasons, but also 14 movies for the streaming service Paramount + that will “expand into South Park’s current world.” Given that the game of question has been described as a “set in the world of South Park”, it could be part of an extended ‘South Park Universe’ deal.
