The film and TV studio, MGM has teamed with the video game publisher, NACON to launch a new RoboCop video game based on the first three films in the original RoboCop movie universe.
Titled RoboCop: Rogue City, the game will feature a new storyline and is currently being developed by the studio Teyon, the team behind the critically successful Terminator: Resistance. The game has a planned release date of 2023 across console and PC platforms.
A classic sci-fi adventure, RoboCop is regarded as one of Hollywood’s most iconic film franchises of all time. First released in 1987, the franchise continues to resonate with audiences around the world today. Celebrating its 35h anniversary next year, RoboCop enjoys a robust consumer products and licensing programme and boasts a strong legacy in the gaming space.
“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,” said Alain Falc, CEO of NACON. “The game is the perfect fit to pursue our aim of offering different gaming experiences to the widest possible audience.”
Both NACON and Teyon will work with MGM to develop a gaming experience authentic to the RoboCop franchise. The original film follows the story of police officer, Alex Murphy who, when attacked by robbers is reconstructed by doctors who create an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg.
“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,” said Robert Marick, executive president global consumer products and experiences, MGM.
“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.”
