South Park: The Stick of Truth released in 2014 for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The game was developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Ubisoft. However, with The Fractured But Whole, development is being handled by Ubisoft San Francisco.
South Park is an adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The program is known for following four grade school boys—Kyle, Stan, Cartman, and Kenny—who get into innumerable absurd situations. South Park has a reputation of being irreverent, often making fun of everyone and everything, particularly hot-button issues in pop culture and celebrities. The official show debuted in 1997 after Parker and Stone developed the show from consecutive animated shorts titled The Spirit of Christmas. South Park has aired twenty seasons to date and is slated to continue through at least 2019. The sitcom remains one of Comedy Central’s highest rated programs, even with overall ratings fluctuating over the years.
