Joining Robocop will be a standalone Terminator game made by Rims Racing developer Nacon Studio Milan. It’s an open-world survival game set after the events of Doomsday, so you’re more likely to hide from the T-800 and other vehicles than drive them.

No word on when the Terminator game will arrive on PC and consoles – Nakon only said that it will arrive “in the distant future.” The lack of any gameplay in the teaser suggests that there is still a lot of work to be done.
