Ubisoft can't promise South Park: The Fractured But Whole won't get censored
Hopefully it won't be.
Ubisoft doesn't want to have South Park: The Fractured But Whole get censored, but with the South Park writers working on it - there are no promises.
Paul Cross, the Director of Design at Ubisoft San Francisco, detailed that while they game developers are looking to avoid using sensitive material, there is no guarantee that South Park: The Fractured But Whole will not be censored.
"There are certain things here that we’re just trying to avoid because there’s no point in going through the pain of it, but again, Matt and Trey, the way they work is that they’re not going to be censored, they don’t want to be censored. They are going to write what they think is funny and relevant, and tells the story that they want to tell," Cross said to Xbox Achievements.
"So 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."
