RoboCop: Rogue City, a new RoboCop computer game based on the first three RoboCop films, has been revealed by publisher NACON and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). According to the release, RoboCop: Rogue City will be a first-person shooter with a fresh plot in which players will take on the character of Alex Murphy. Teyon is working on it, and it is scheduled to be released in 2023 for unspecified console and PC platforms. The first teaser trailer, which was published alongside the announcement and can be seen above, doesn’t provide much more, but it does hint at what to anticipate. If you are unfamiliar with Teyon, he is the creator of Terminator: Resistance, which will be released in 2019. According to Metacritic, the highest average score across all platforms for which it has been released is a 60 on PC. An “improved” version was published earlier this year for the PlayStation 5 and received a 61 on Metacritic. Previous work isn’t always indicative of how RoboCop: Rogue City will come out, but it’s worth mentioning that the developer’s most prominent video game received lukewarm reviews at best.
