THQ has announced that they are collaborating with South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker to develop the next chapter in South Park entertainment: "South Park: The Game."

South Park: The Game is pitched as a role-playing adventure title that will allow players to befriend Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny and explore the quiet little mountain town.

"Our goal is simple: to put creative talent first," said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "Matt and Trey are arguably two of the most important comedic talents of their generation. Bringing their vision of South Park to the interactive space is a dream-come-true."

South Park: The Game is scheduled to be available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in the second half of calendar 2012.

During th early years of the show three tie-in games were released by Acclaim Entertainment: South Park (1998), South Park: Chef's Luv Shack (1999), and South Park Rally (2000), but these were received poorly by the show's creators. The last effort at adapting the show for gaming was 2009's South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play! from Doublesix.
