It’s been a long time since we had some proper Robocop content – no, we don’t include KFC ads or the 2014 reboot –  and now we have something to (hopefully) celebrate.

NACON and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer have dropped a trailer, below, for RoboCop: Rogue City, a new game set in the first three (three?!) movies’ timeline. It will be developed by Teyon and is expected to arrive in 2023 – we’re not sure on what platforms yet, sadly.

Teyon have already delved into classic 80s sci-fi with Terminator: Resistance – maybe not the most reassuring news.

Rogue City is a first person shooter and the player will be, obviously, Officer Alex Murphy aka Robocop.

“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.”

Robert Marick, Executive Vice President Global Consumer Products and Experiences, at MGM, added: “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.”

Become the iconic hero whose part man, part machine, all cop as you attempt to bring justice to the dangerous, crime-ridden streets of Old Detroit in RoboCop: Rogue City.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
