Game publisher Nacon and entertainment company Metro Goldwyn Mayer announce they have signed an agreement to launch an all-new “RoboCop” video game based on the first three films in the original “RoboCop” universe. The game will feature a new “RoboCop” story and is being developed by the studio Teyon, who is behind “Terminator: Resistance.” The game is planned to release in 2023 for console and PC platforms.
"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,” says Alain Falc, chief executive officer, Nacon. “This game is the perfect fit to pursue our aim of offering different gaming experiences to the widest possible audience.”
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 very much looking forward to collaborating with Nacon and Teyon to bring one of MGM’s most timeless IPs back to gaming platforms with a brand-new story,” says Robert Marick, executive vice president global consumer products and experiences, Metro Goldwyn Mayer. “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.”
More information about “RoboCop: Rogue City” will be shared at a later date.
