With the month of July looming large and no noise out of the online multiplayer ARPG Conan Chop Chop, which was supposed to have a release sometime in the second quarter of this year, it’s probably unsurprising that Funcom has once more pushed back the game’s launch.
Conan Chop Chop’s release date is even murkier than before, as it’s been moved to a distant, nebulous point before the end of 2020. The delay is required to “allow for further development” according to the presser, and a hard calendar date for the game’s launch will be announced at a later time.
For those who aren’t immediately familiar, Conan Chop Chop is a roguelite ARPG that was first assumed to be an April Fool’s Day joke until it was officially confirmed as a real, in-development title. It was originally planned to be a four-player couch co-op title, but pushed back its release date in August 2019 in order to add full online multiplayer functionality. Since then the game was delayed once more in February 2020 in the interest of adding multiplayer optimization and polish, and now it’s been kicked down the pike once again.
