Publisher Nacon, RoboCop: Villain City was in the minds of the fans from the start announced in 2022. With original film star Peter Weller reprising his role as Officer Murphy, this could be the true sequel to the original film that fans have been asking for.
Curiously, there is no mention of the previously announced Nintendo Switch port for the game. Looking at the new footage, it’s clear that Nintendo’s hybrid device couldn’t live up to those visuals, but that version of the game has apparently been dropped.
In any case, RoboCop: Villain City will be available this September on PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store), PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
