Robocop Rogue City for Nintendo Switch isn't happening

Today, it has been officially confirmed that the tie-in first-person shooter Robocop: Rogue City is not coming to the Nintendo Switch. 

While earlier reveals have included Nintendo's hybrid console among the list of platforms the game would be released on. Things have changed. 

Earlier today reports (courtesy of Nintendolife) started surfacing that the official Facebook page of the game was denying the existence of any plans for a Switch release.

Earlier reveals of RoboCop: Rogue City included the Nintendo Switch logo. 

TechRaptor reached out to publisher Nacon to confirm the rumor, and we have indeed verified that it is accurate. A Nacon spokesperson responded with the following.

At this moment we don't have any plans for a Nintendo Switch release.

You will notice that this is exactly the reply provided on Facebook, just without the usual doubts sparked by replies from social media accounts, which aren't always accurate. 

RoboCop: Rogue City, will launch in just a few days on November 2, 2023, on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC. It's developed by Teyon, which you may know for Terminator: Resistance.

You can already pre-order a physical edition for PS5 or Xbox Series X.

You can check out a previous trailer and another look at gameplay, focusing on the RPG elements.

If the name RoboCop doesn't ring a bell (it is a fairly old IP, after all), the ip debuted in 1987 as a dystopian sci-fi action movie directed by Paul Verhoeven and written by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner. 

Not only it was well received critically, but it was also successful at the box office and remained well-loved among a large fanbase that adores it to this day.

This is certainly fairly rare for a movie, and so far, it appears that RoboCop: Rogue City may actually do the original IP justice, which is even rare for a movie tie-in video game.
