The very real hack-and-slash has been pushed back slightly.
Conan Chop Chop

Conan Chop Chop initially began life as an apparent April Fools joke back in 2019. Nope, it was very much a real video game that was really in development from Mighty Kingdom and set to be published by Funcom. It has a cute art style, some tried and true hack-and-slash style gameplay, and co-op support for up to four players. We talked a bit about it when Funcom dished the first details back in June of 2019, if you recall.

We haven't heard too much about the game since then. Truth be told, we largely forgot that this was even a game and I'm willing to bet that you forgot as well. The good news is that it's still coming. The bad news is that it's not coming as soon as initially thought.

Conan Chop Chop was initially supposed to be released later this month on February 25. Instead, that release date has slipped at least a few months. According to Funcom and Mighty Kingdom, Conan Chop Chop will now be released at some point in Q2 2020. By most calendars, that places the release window anywhere from April to the end of June.

Mighty Kingdom CEO Philip Mayes says that they are "almost at the finish line." He and his studio says, "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," he added.

Conan Chop Chop will be released on the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch once it's complete.
