South Park co-creator Matt Stone says that, despite the protracted development of The Stick of Truth, he'd be open to the possibility of working on a sequel.

Speaking with IGN at the game's launch, Stone said a sequel would depend on how The Stick of Truth was received, which has been generally favourably.

"Never say never. I would do it again, in some fashion," said Stone. "I think that video games are really interesting."

Stone described the game's development as "hellacious", and thumbing his thesaurus back into his breast pocket, continued, "There was definitely a big learning curve for [South Park co-creator] Trey [Parker] and I. We made a lot of mistakes and assumptions."

Speaking in July last year, Stone and Parker said the scope of The Stick of Truth grew out of control due to the size of its influences.

Speaking at Comic-Con (as reported by Polygon), Parker and Stone said that games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, EarthBound, Paper Mario, and The Legend of Zelda were the inspirations for the upcoming RPG.

However, the consequence of such expansive influences was an 850 page script that according to Parker included almost every character in South Park.
