Conan Chop Chop delayed into 2020 to add online multiplayer

Publisher Funcom and developer Mighty Kingdom have announced that Conan Chop Chop has been delayed in order to add online multiplayer. The title, which was first announced on April 1, 2019 and thought to be an April Fool’s prank, was officially revealed at E3.

Conan Chop Chop is an action-adventure roguelike starring everyone’s favourite barbarian playable by 1-4 players.

Having shown the game to press, Funcom and Mighty Kingdom decided to delay the title after an overwhelming number of requests to add online multiplayer.

Founder and CEO of Mighty Kingdom Philip Mayes said of the project;

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

He added that the extra time the team will take to “expand multiplayer from just couch co-op to also include full online multiplayer” is an exciting opportunity.

Conan Chop Chop is coming to PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One in 2020.
