As of now, the only downloadable content available for South Park: The Stick of Truth is a couple of costume packs, and Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart told Polygon that it’s highly likely to stay that way.

The main culprit, Urquhart said, is the change in publisher from THQ to Ubisoft in early 2013, when the focus shifted to simply making sure the game was finished.

“We had always talked about it, extending the story through DLC,” Urquhart told Polygon. “It was just stuff on paper, but it never went beyond talking about it. That was when THQ was involved. When it moved to Ubisoft, there was more pressure to get it done. I think that became the priority, so we got it done.”

Urquhart said that series co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone “did an immense amount of work on the game,” but he doesn’t see any signs that Ubisoft and South Park Digital Studios are ready to get back together after a stressful push to finish the game in 2013.

“As far as we know, [Ubisoft and South Park] are done,” he said.

Urquhart did offer one faint glimmer of hope for fans hoping for additional content, indicating that Obsidian has reached out to Ubisoft on the feasibility of creating something new for the game, though he didn’t offer specifics. “I don’t know what that [additional content] could be,” he told Polygon.
