Is The New South Park Game Another RPG?

Recent details have cast doubt on the possibility of the next South Park game being an RPG, and there are many other directions it can go in.

Last year’s reveal of a new South Park game excited fans of the show and games everywhere, but a recent job listing from the studio may mean that it will deviate from the formula that the first two console titles used. The game is confirmed to be in 3D, as opposed to the 2.5D art style that’s present in both the long-running series and its popular RPGs. This alone makes it different from previous games, but it’s possible that it will be even more so than fans think.

It’s currently unknown exactly what a new South Park game might look like, or if it would divert more aggressively from South Park’s game series roots, but it’s certainly possible. Stick of Truth and Fractured But Whole are only two of the series’ wide library of games, and while these were two of the best, and both RPGs, South Park has done everything from quiz games to pinball. There’s plenty of room for something new, assuming that’s the direction its developer decides to go.

The Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole deviated somewhat from standard RPG fare by delighting players with their vulgar humor, wacky shenanigans, and perfectly on-brand South Park antics. They felt just like episodes of the show, and made long-time and new fans alike truly feel like The New Kid. But the next South Park game could try a new genre, as a job listing by Question, the developer of the game, lists multiplayer level design experience as a requirement, which points to the next South Park game having some multiplayer features. It’s possible that the game will be an RPG with multiplayer options, or it could be another genre entirely. No matter what it ends up being, it will hopefully stay true to the show.

What Could The Next South Park Game Be?

The next game is described as being “set in the world of South Park” by its creators, so it’s already confirmed to be different from Ubisoft‘s South Park games, and not even confirmed to have the same familiar cast that fans know and love. There are precious few details, but many possibilities, and one of them is that it will in fact be an RPG. Multiplayer doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s no chance for it to follow in the footsteps of past console games, so fans who are hoping for another game like Stick of Truth shouldn’t lose hope just yet. It could even be an MMORPG, connecting many players in one world.

There is, however, the chance that the game will switch genres. There are many that it could dive into, including a remake of South Park Rally for the original PlayStation. It could be a Sandbox game where players can run rampant in the town of South Park and its ancillary locations. Whether the next South Park game is the best or worst yet doesn’t entirely hinge on its genre, and there are many that it lends itself well to. It could also be an FPS, one that seeks to satirize the Call of Duty and Modern Warfare games the same way that Stick of Truth and Fractured But Whole did for classic RPGs and the MCU. There’s even the chance that it’s a Battle Royale or Chinpokomon creature-collector game, both of which are an exciting and horrifying thought at the same time.

IT’s even possible that the next South Park game will be a hybrid of two or more genres. With such an unpredictable and chaotic series, anything is possible. An RPG with Roguelike elements or a Survival/Stealth/Beat ’em up could be exciting and new, and since the game is still so far away, nothing should be discounted. South Park, after all, has proven time and again that it one of the things it does best is defying expectations.
