From Press Release:
COPENHAGEN, DENMARK October 5th 2023 – Ghost Ship Games, the studio and publisher behind hit co-op game Deep Rock Galactic, has today revealed the details of its next game in development: Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core. Revealed during the Ghost Ship Publishing: On the Horizon live stream, a new teaser trailer sets the scene for the studio’s next co-op, extraplanetary bullet fest. Players will join the elite team of dwarven Reclaimers, tasked with re-establishing control over lost deep mining operations on Hoxxes IV.
Get to the Core
Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core is a one to four player co-op FPS set in the familiar Deep Rock Galactic universe, but with a new roguelite gameplay experience. Dwarves will equip and customise Phase Suits with active abilities, and arm themselves with a classified range of unique weaponry before heading into the great unknown.
After entering the mysterious Greyout Zone, in the deepest depths of Hoxxes IV, there will be no return for Dwarves without completing their mission. Fighting through multiple procedurally generated stages, players will salvage caches of equipment and weapons to expand their arsenal for that mission. Accompanied only by their squadmates and a trusty Processor Drone, Reclaimers can collect and deposit a new wonder-mineral, Expenite, to generate a wide range of powerful temporary upgrades.
By completing mission tasks and reclaiming dig sites, players will earn the means to research and permanently unlock new Reclaimer Weapons, Phase Suits, and Suit Mods. Expanding gear options and experimenting with various setups will enable players to tackle the deepest and most dangerous dig sites in the Greyout Zone.

Developed the Ghost Ship way
Just like Deep Rock Galactic, Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core will be created in open development with the community. Set to launch into Early Access, upcoming closed alpha tests will be announced via Steam Posts and the Deep Rock Galactic Discord, along with updates on the game’s direction right from the very earliest stage of development.
“We’re so excited to finally share our vision for the next game in the Deep Rock Galactic universe. We have intentionally not positioned this title as a sequel, as we still aim to support Deep Rock Galactic as a live game, however we were keen to give fans a fresh take on the gameplay formula that only a spin-off title could provide,” said Mikkel Martin Pederson, Co-founder and Game Director at Ghost Ship Games. “More than this, we can’t wait to start getting feedback from the fans to build the game they want to play, as our process of open development helped Deep Rock Galactic be the game it has become.”
Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core is available to wishlist on Steam here, launching into Early Access on Steam in November 2024.
