MGM Teams Up On All New Robocop Game

Leading studio MGM is teaming up on production of an all-new Robocop video game for PC and consoles.

One of the top sci fi movies of the past half century, Robocop debuted in 1987 and still maintains a strong fan base and licensing program 35 years later.

Game publisher NACON and Metro Goldwyn Mayer say they have signed an agreement to launch Robocop: Rogue City, a game based on the first three films in the original RoboCop universe. The highly-anticipated game will feature a new RoboCop story and is being developed by the studio Teyon, which also developed the critically successful Terminator: Resistance. The game is planned for release in 2023 for console and PC platforms.

“We’re very much looking forward to collaborating with NACON and Teyon to bring one of MGM’s most timeless I.P.’s back to gaming platforms with a brand-new story,” said Robert Marick, Executive VP for Global Consumer Products and Experiences at 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.”

RoboCop is a classic sci-fi action-adventure and one of Hollywood’s best known sci fi franchises of all time. First released in 1987, RoboCop has transcended pop culture with a robust consumer products and licensing program and a strong legacy in the gaming space.

The partners say 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 the original RoboCop himself. In the first RoboCop film, when good cop Alex Murphy is fatally wounded by ruthless criminals, innovative doctors are able to piece him back together as an almost unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called “RoboCop.”

The film’s popularity really came from the very human man inside the machine, as Murphy struggles to achieve real justice in a corrupt society, where politicians and corporations bend the law for their own interests.

“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. “This game is the perfect fit to pursue our aim of offering different gaming experiences to the widest possible audience.”
