As we fast approach 35 years since the classic RoboCop first hit the big screens, and many years since we last saw a videogame inspired by that brilliance, a brand new RoboCop video game is getting set to launch on PC and console – and if NACON and MGM have their way, RoboCop: Rogue City will be here in 2023.
The last time we saw RoboCop in the gaming scene it was as a cameo appearance in Mortal Kombat 11, but thanks to a combination of the publishing team of NACON, they of MGM and the development brilliance at Teyon, RoboCop will once again be aiming for lead status.
An all-new RoboCop game is planned to release in 2023 on PC and console, with it based on the first three films of the original RoboCop universe. Rogue City will feature an all-new story and will be created by those at Teyon – they behind Terminator: Resistance – with it launching in time to celebrate 35 years since the first film.
NACON and Teyon will work with MGM to develop an authentic RoboCop game experience that is faithful to the franchise’s DNA, while immersing gamers in an original story that enables them to play as none other than RoboCop himself. In the original RoboCop film, when good cop Alex Murphy is fatally wounded by ruthless criminals, innovative doctors are able to piece him back together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called “RoboCop.”
“We’re delighted to be teaming up with MGM to offer a new vision of a popular franchise that was created over 30 years ago. This game is the perfect fit to pursue our aim of offering different gaming experiences to the widest possible audience,” said Alain Falc, CEO of NACON.
Robert Marick, Executive Vice President Global Consumer Products and Experiences, at MGM, said, “We’re very much looking forward to collaborating with NACON and Teyon to bring one of MGM’s most timeless I.P.’s back to gaming platforms with a brand-new story. The film is known for gripping action and complex storytelling, and we are excited for RoboCop fans to experience this first hand through the game.”
