The last couple of times we saw RoboCop in videogames, the cult classic dystopian anti-hero was languishing in mobile games. Not seen on consoles since the PlayStation 2 era outside of a cameo/DLC appearance in Mortal Kombat 11, RoboCop will be landing back in a starring role in 2023.
Publisher NACON and developer Teyon will be releasing RoboCop: Rogue City, an original story based on the first three RoboCop films, for consoles and PC. Teyon is the developer of Terminator: Resistance and Rambo: The Video Game, so it looks like Rogue City is a hat trick of IP licensing for this studio.
The RoboCop franchise is hitting its 35th anniversary this year, although a new movie hasn’t appeared since the 2014 remake underperformed in the box office. RoboCop has been a longtime fixture in pop culture elsewhere though, including several comic books and that one time he helped Sting break out of a cage during WCW Capital Combat 1990.
