A vague teaser confirms that a new South Park game is in the works at THQ, possibly the same one announced last year.

To round out its recent digital showcase, THQ announced that it has 43 games in development, with 26 yet to be announced. It then went ahead and announced a new South Park game.

This announcement was just a logo for South Park Digital Studios, which produces the show and other related media such as video games.

Last year, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone said a new 3D game “set in the world of South Park” was in the works. They probably shouldn’t have said that at the time, but it’s likely this is the same project.

There is also the fact that Question Games is also said to be working on a South Park game which is speculated to be for consoles and will have a multiplayer component. That’s probably the same game THQ is teasing, too.

THQ was supposed to be the original publisher of the 2014 RPG South Park: The Stick Of Truth, but it went bust before it had a chance and ended up selling the publishing rights to Ubisoft (THQ Nordic later bought the THQ name and some of its IP).

Ubisoft then released the sequel The Fractured But Whole in 2017, but that remains the last big-budget South Park game on consoles.

As for the rest of the THQ Showcase, it started with the Alone In The Dark remake. While its existence was leaked ahead of the showcase, the reveal trailer gave us some proper insight into its gameplay.

Also, we got a new trailer for the Gothic Remake, which got the green light in 2020 after a successful playable teaser. Much like Alone In The Dark, it will be for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC (so no PlayStation 4 or Xbox One release), but the trailer didn’t include any gameplay or a release date.

In terms of non-remake games, both Outcast 2 and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake have received new gameplay trailers. Official release dates are still missing, but retailers may have leaked them anyway.

Some gameplay was also shown for wrestling sim AEW Fight Forever, which is being developed at Yuke’s (the original studio for the WWE 2K games, until 2018), and THQ confirmed that there will be a playable demo at Gamescom later this month will give.

Other brand new announcements include Tempest Rising, a real-time strategy game from Duke Nukem Studio 3D Realms, and Wreckcreation, an arcade racer deliberately resembling Burnout – with developer Three Fields Entertainment, made up of former employees of burnout studio Criterion Studios.

What the other games are remains to be seen, but when THQ Nordic says it has 43 games in development, they could be different format versions of the same title – so the number of unique games is likely lower.
