The Terminator: Resistance studio, Teyon, is working on a new game about a massive cyborg with a predilection for violence and monotony, but this time the machine is one of the good ones. This is RoboCop: Rogue City, a new adventure about the future of law enforcement.
RoboCop: Rogue City will be released by Nacon in collaboration with MGM and will follow a new story based on the first three RoboCop films, the first of which premiered in 1987 until 35 years ago. Nacon said, I guess, without any sense of irony, that his enduring legacy is proof that RoboCop "has transcended pop culture with a robust consumer product and licensing program."
“We look forward to collaborating with Nacon and Teyon to bring one of MGM’s most timeless IPs to gaming platforms with a new history,” said Robert Marick, MGM’s vice president of global consumer products and experiences. "The film is known for its captivating action and complex storytelling, and we're thrilled that RoboCop fans can experience this first-hand through the game."
Unfortunately, there are no clues as to what kind of game RoboCop is actually: Rogue City: The teaser isn’t entirely informative, except to say, surprise! Detroit streets. Dead or alive, you come with me and all that.
I’ve been told that Terminator: Resistance is really pretty good, so I’m hoping Teyon can be successful with RoboCop as well. But much of that will depend on how he handles the satirical subtext of the films: RoboCop isn’t exactly subtle, but it comes into play with certain concepts in hand that very clearly define the world where it exists. Creating it "smart" is probably a little too generous, but I hope developers can come up with something smarter than "the cyborg shoots the bad guys with an increasingly explosive state-of-the-art fan pum pum. "
We'll see, but not for a while: RoboCop: Rogue City is not scheduled to come out until 2023.
