Your comment doesn't make any sense to me. It's THQ that screwed up the release of this project, not Trey and Matt, who wrote all the dialogue and performed the voices.

From what I understand, Obsidian was hired directly by South Park Studios, THQ acted only as the publisher and currently owes part of the advance payments due to South Park.

Who knows what the terms of Obsidian's development were, but more likely than not there was some sort of bonus payment based on sales. It would seem to be more in Obsidian's interest as well for the rights to revert to South Park, who would then be in a position to negotiate a better publisher deal for their completed or nearly completed game, rather than for the title to be unloaded in the bankruptcy auction at a discounted price.
