Today Funcom and Mighty Kingdom have announced that Conan Chop Chop has been delayed until 2020. While normally a delay would be cause for concern this one is actually a very good thing. After a very successful demo this summer the two companies have decided to increase their investment in the game, making it bigger and better.
“We had an absolute blast showcasing the game at E3 and Gamescom earlier this year. It was especially gratifying to see how much fun people had playing the game in co-op mode. The teamwork, the banter, the way people moved ever so sneakily towards their near-death companions in order to pick up their gold when they fall… We couldn’t have been happier with the reception,” says founder and CEO of Mighty Kingdom Philip Mayes.
“One of the things we get to do with the extra time is expand multiplayer from just couch co-op to also include full online multiplayer,“ says Mayes. “This has undoubtedly been THE most requested feature after we started showing off the game, so we’re very excited for the opportunity to bring that in.”
Now the game is due to release in the first quarter of 2020 on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Conan Chop Chop was first announced as an April Fools Day joke but it turned out not to be a joke at all. At E3 the game was formally announced and it was said that the game would launch on September 3rd. Which is of course just a little bit over a week away.
It might just be a silly stick figure Conan game, but honestly, it looks like it will be a blast to play and we can’t wait to see what else they do with it now that they’ve given themselves a few more months of development.
