The director for the design of Ubisoft San Francisco, Paul Cross, said that he did not feel he could promise that South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be free of any censorship on the European market.
In an interview with Xbox Achievements, Paul Cross of Ubisoft San Francisco said he could not assure fans that South Park: The Fractured But Whole can come in full or censored in Europe or other markets.
To be precise, Cross has specified that the development team is trying to encourage authors Trey Parker and Matt Stone to avoid including in the story elements that may risk being censored in Europe or Australia, as happened with The Stick of Truth some years ago.
The Design Director added that the two authors do not want that their work to receive censor, however he said that “We’re going to work with the ratings boards to give you the full experience that we possibly can. We’ll encourage not putting in things that are going to get it, you know, banned in Australia, kind of situation. I can’t promise, because we’re still going to be working with the creatives to deliver the story that they want to truly deliver.”
Of course, some of you will remember how some elements of South Park: The Stick of Truth have been censored in Europe and Australia. What will happen, however, with South Park: The Fractured But Whole? We will know about it in the coming days for sure.
Recall that South Park: The Fractured But Whole is set to release on this October 17 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
