Funcom’s Conan Chop Chop has been delayed yet again, this time to Q2 2020

Funcom spent 2019 teasing its goofy but cuddly online ARPG Conan Chop Chop. Originally floated as an April Fools’ Day joke, it turned out to be a real thing for PC and console (yes, even the Switch). Last summer, the studio delayed the game’s planned launch from September into 2020 specifically to “expand multiplayer from just couch co-op to also include full online multiplayer” – closer to an MMO, and enough to put it on MOP’s radar. In December, Funcom and developer Mighty Kingdom set February 25th for the official launch. That’s two weeks away, so we’re all gearing up to dive in, right?

Nope. Unfortunately, this morning Funcom announced today the game won’t make that date after all. In fact, the studio’s didn’t give another hard date, just a broad window of Q2 2020, so some point before July. Here’s Mighty Kingdom CEO Philip Mayes on yet another delay:

“We are almost at the finish line. The additional time is to ensure that the game is optimized for online multiplayer, and to give us a chance to add some polish here and there. It’s basically all about getting that final Chop in place. […] This isn’t merely a one-chop game. This is Conan Chop Chop, and that necessitates extra attention to detail.”

I think I speak for the vast majority when I say that, while it looks like a fun little game, it’s not like there’s tons of anticipation, launch-week vacations planned, etc. I mean, just look at its subreddit: https://old.reddit.com/r/ConanChopChop/ (only one I could find).

There’s definitely some casual interest, but nobody is posting death threats over the delay (unlike some/many other games).

I hope Tencent allows the game to be made. I guess it has too many scary skeletons as is.

It looks cute, but the characters are so simplified they look very much the same. Even in a goofy little game for fun, I’d still like to be able to wear a neat outfit.

A Funcom project having issues?!
