It's taking an extra-long time for Obsidian to get South Park: The Stick of Truth out to the masses, but after hearing how ambitious the script 'South Park' creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, we can understand why.

During a panel for the upcoming game at San Diego Comic Con, the duo behind the long-running animated series discussed the original script for The Stick of Truth. "I really loved playing Skyrim, as many people did" Parker said according to Polygon. The huge world and vast cast of characters greatly appealed to Parker, who believed he could bring the same type of style to South Park. "I was like, 'This is easy. Let's do this,'" Parker added.

The perils of creating such a big game were apparent almost immediately as the story unfolded across 850 pages of script, which featured nearly every character to ever appear on the show. Parker said the development team kept asking him to cut it down, and everyone offered the advice to turn the extra content into DLC. The mention of DLC drew the crowd's ire, but Parker quelled those fears immediately by adding, "I agree... fuck that."

Unfortunately, there's still no release date in sight for South Park: The Stick of Truth, but that doesn't mean the game won't make it out in 2013. Hopefully Ubisoft and Obsidian won't keep us waiting too much longer.
