The Magic Circle studio working on South Park game


Question, the developer behind experimental game-making satire The Magic Circle, is next working on a South Park project.

The California and Virginia-based studio, which most recently released 2019 co-op horror The Blackout Club, revealed its South Park project via a new job listing.

Question's job ad notes that the studio now includes team members who previously worked on Obsidian's celebrated South Park: The Stick of Truth and Ubisoft's own follow-up Fractured But Hole. It also asks for applicants to have multiplayer development experience.

In Eurogamer's The Magic Circle review, Simon Parkin described the game as "a caustic, often-prickly satire on contemporary game making" - something which could probably translate well to a South Park setting.

It's been over four years since the last South Park game was released - RedLynx's South Park: Phone Destroyer for mobiles. Meanwhile, the main South Park franchise rumbles on with a series of special episodes for new streaming service Paramount+.
