Funcom revealed today that their upcoming roguelike Conan Chop Chop has been delayed to 2020 so developers Mighty Kingdom can add online co-op to the game (before this change, Chop Chop was only playable solo or in couch co-op).
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.
Founder and CEO of Mighty Kingdom, Philip Mayes.
