THQ and South Park Studios in dispute over ‘Stick of Truth’ rights

Anyone keeping track of THQ’s woes over the past few months knows the company is not in a good situation right now. An auction is supposed to be held today, where the publisher can sell off its various IPs, but South Park Studios had something to say about this.

The two companies worked together to create the upcoming title South Park: The Stick of Truth, and according to a letter written by SPS, THQ cannot sell the publishing rights to the title. They go on to explain that THQ should sell the rights to SPS, and SPS alone. THQ obviously thinks otherwise. The Stick of Truth is currently scheduled to release March 5th, but it’s unknown what affect, if any, this conflict will have.

How do you think this will all play out? Let us know in the comments below.
