The game needs to be delayed until a better publisher could be found that would back the project with proper funding

If I was them, I would be doing the same thing. Let them shop it around instead.

Yeah, I can understand them not wanting the sale of their IP to be in the hands of a publisher that JUST went bankrupt.

They do. I think you misunderstood this, South Park Studios wants THQ to finish the project with proper funding. Or am I misunderstanding this?

It doesn't say what they're planning to do with it, just that they want to secure the rights for themselves before THQ actions them away to someone without them having a say.

I'm guessing they probably want to make sure the game falls in the right hands themselves.

I don't see why they would even bother. The game is going to flop anyway. South Park hasn't been good for years and the game doesn't look any better.

Since a completely different group of people didn't make a great game based on this show 10 years ago this group of people should just quit on a project they've been working on for 2 years? Im glad not everyone is as pessimistic as you.

Don't think this is going to affect game's future.
Looking at GS's article, there's no hint that handing over IP control will change when the game's coming out or even hints a question toward its development since THQ is still bounded by contract to push the game.
