    South Park Studios files motion to halt THQ’s auction of The Stick of Truth publishing rights | VG247

    South Park Studios has filed a motion to halt THQ’s auction of publishing rights to South Park: The Stick of Truth in development with Obsidian.




    According to a filing with the US Bankruptcy Court in Delaware dug up by NeoGAF, South Park Studios have submitted an objection to THQ’s sale.

    The studio’s filing states THQ doesn’t have the authority to auction off publishing rights for The Stick of Truth, as it should be allowed to buy back the game rights themselves before seeking a new publisher.

    South Park Studios cites the contract it signed with THQ in 2011, in which the studio is allowed to take over “all elements of the game and related products” at the cost of THQ should the publisher be found in breach of contract.

    The studio also cited section 365(c)(1) of the US Bankruptcy Code, claiming that THQ can’t sell the rights to another publisher.

    THQ filed a response, stating it has the rights to auction the publishing rights off if it pleases, citing a clause in the contract which has been “redacted from the public documentation,” according to Gamespot.

    The firm’s legal team said it would “work toward a consensual resolution of the Objection prior to the Sale Hearing,” which started in about 30 minutes as of press time.

    THQ Auction: Hearing from a number of sources that only creditors will be allowed to attend the auction. Will provide update when I get it.

    Crytek should jump in for Red Faction, other than that, i'd like Saints Row to go to anywhere, no one is going to capture it's style or gameplay so let someone try something a bit different with it.

    Warner Bros. should get the Saint's Row license, while Double Fine should get Stacking and Costume Quest, and Ubisoft should get the WWE license as long as Yuke's is doing the games.
    P.S. The South Park game should never be released because the show fucking sucks and it offensive up the ass. The fanboys has got the worst of the fanboys second COD's mostly kiddie fanboys. Please don't reply to this P.S. sucka.

    south park is actually well done because they literally have the ability to make a episode in a week thus are able to stay on current topics very easily.


    they have a documentary on it.

    Speaking of "up the ass", maybe you should remove the stick from yours. You might enjoy South Park a bit more.
