RoboCop: Rogue City doesn’t have a confirmed age rating yet, but when it does, you can be sure the game will be rated “M” for a mature audience. That’s exactly the rating fans are probably hoping for, given the over-the-top violence present in the 1987 film, and it’s what developer Teyon is counting on. Game director Piotr Latokha spoke about this during a demo of RoboCop: Rogue City and said that the team knew from the start that they would be aiming for an M rating.
Latoja spoke to reporters after the gameplay demo of RoboCop: Rogue City, and talked about how the team approached making the game with ratings in mind. He said that Teyon, the same developers behind Terminator: Resistance, always aimed for a more mature rating and felt that less would “piss off the fans”.
“It was one of the first designs when we talked about playing in the RoboCop world,” he said. “Based on the first films, we were confident that we didn’t want to be limited to a Teen rating or anything like that. We knew that it would immediately piss off the fans if they knew we had to make such compromises.”
Of course, people probably expected Rogue City to get an M rating if they paid attention to the trailers. From what we’ve seen so far, the game has RoboCop making short work of the bad guys, and often with bloody results. Latoja said the team was sticking to the rankings broad enough to show what they wanted, adding that nothing had to be cut to soften the tone.
“We definitely wanted to make a mature game, but really we wanted to show the violence from the movies, that you’re not limited to that. But I don’t think we needed to do any special cuts. That’s good. What we really wanted to show in the game, maybe [заслужить] the rating we are likely to get. Basically, it’s 18. That’s enough to show what we wanted.”
RoboCop: Rogue City is scheduled to release in September for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
