The growing business RoboCop: Rogue Town is Teyon, a Polish game development company that is best known for its shooter games that it creates based on 1980s film franchises.
Teyon was the company responsible for the development Rambo: the video game which was released in 2014. This game was unfortunately plagued with development issues ranging from management to marketing to scope, according to YouTuber Matt McMuscles.
Teyon has also developed Terminator: Resistance which was released in 2019. This game was considered a solid improvement, not having many of the issues that the company has been criticized for in the past.
Teyon’s skills seem to be gradually improving, however, fans are concerned that the company doesn’t have the skills to make a video game in a franchise that has such a cult following. Fearing the game will be a flop, just like Rambo: the video gamefans are tentatively hoping for the development company’s latest project after the success of the recent trailer.
