THQ and Obsidian South Park RPG in Development

Game Informer is well known for having a history of world-exclusive first reveals and details on upcoming games, but the January issue has perhaps one of the most surprising reveals the magazine has had to date: Fallout: New Vegas development studio Obsidian is teaming up with THQ to deliver an RPG based on the hit Comedy Central animated series, South Park.

Game Informer’s teaser post on their site says that Obsidian is trying to make a full scale RPG with show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, who are writing the script, performing voice acting, and overseeing the game’s development. The post says that the game tasks players to “make friends and defend the town from a wide range of threats.”

South Park: The Game is in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and is currently scheduled to be released in 2012. The issue containing the feature, which includes an interview with both Stone and Parker, will be heading out to subscribers on December 8th.
