Conan Chop Chop's Release Has Been Delayed… Again

Sad news today for those of you waiting on Conan Chop Chop as Funcom revealed the game has been pushed back again. Back in February the company originally pushed the game back to Q2 2020, in what we thought would be the final push for the game as we awaited a proper release date for it. We had a sense that when the game didn't come up in any of the announcements that had been happening in June, it might get pushed again, and now we know that is correct. The companies ent out a brief alert to media this morning, saying "The rogue-lite party-game Conan Chop Chop, previously scheduled for release in Q2 2020, has had its release date moved to allow for further development. The game is still due to release in 2020, but the exact date will be announced through a press release", but gave no timeframe beyond that. We're guessing it'll be a holiday release at this point, because if it isn't we look forward to seeing it in 2021.

The treacherous wizard Thoth-Amon has devised a plan to resurrect the ancient evil that is Xaltotun. If he succeeds, he will condemn the world to an eternity of darkness and enslavement. Only you can stop him, but in order to do so you must use all your cunning. All your guile. You must summon all your courage and swordsmanship. You must … Chop Chop! Conan Chop Chop is the most epic and realistic stick figure game ever to be set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, thus there will be an excessive amount of gore and flying limbs. Be warned that this may in turn lead to uncontrollable outbursts of joy and/or profanities, usually depending on which end of the sword you are on.
