Speaking at a Comic-Con panel in San Diego last night (as detailed by Polygon) South Park co-creator Trey Parker had some harsh words about turning content cut from the upcoming South Park: The Stick of Truth game into future downloadable content. Parker and his partner Matt Stone were inspired by Skyrim to write 850 pages worth of material for the game. Some of that material was eventually cut.
Some suggested the material be used for future DLC.
"Everyone kept saying to us [make that extra content] DLC," Parker said, to jeers from the crowd attending the panel. "And I agree… fuck that."
Of course this doesn't mean that DLC is being ruled out altogether; it just means that it won't use any material originally intended for the full game.
The Stick of Truth is scheduled for release this holiday season. Parker and Stone are working very closely with the development team at Obsidian Entertainment to make sure it is more than just a game based on a popular license. The game takes a lot of inspiration from the fantasy genre, as well as games such as Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda, and Earthbound.
