Funcom and Mighty Kingdom made an announcement today that the upcoming action-adventure roguelike Conan Chop Chop would be pushed back. The release date was changed to Q1 2020, to include a much bigger feature: online multiplayer. The first demo was very successful, so they want to add more features to make it a more robust, full experience.
Philip Mayes, CEO of Mighty Kingdom had this to say:
“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.
“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. 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.”
