South Park Digital Studios Objects To THQ's Sale Of Game

The auctioning off of THQ properties happens today, but the interactive wing of the South Park empire has filed a motion objecting to the possible sale of The Stick of Truth.

Documents sent by THQ show South Park Digital has filed a complaint that objects to the sale and says that South Park Digital Studios has the right to acquire all elements of the game and shop them to publishers itself.

THQ refutes this claim citing the original contract with the studio.

The pair are apparently hashing out their differences in advance of the auction.
