Nevertheless, it additionally recommended the sport can be developed internally by an in-house studio, so except these plans have modified there could also be two South Park video games at present within the works.
That Viacom deal coated not solely six extra seasons of South Park, but additionally 14 motion pictures for the streaming service Paramount+ that may “broaden on the present world” of South Park.
