Hi-Rez Studios have announced a new shooter that is slated for a 2020 release, named Rogue Company. It will be a third-person shooter with crossplay from the get go, available on all mainstream platforms and exclusive to Epic Games Store.

Rogue Company is a third-person shooter that seems to revel in edgy outfits and behaviours of its characters, at least according to the announcement trailer that you can see below. 

The name refers to the eponymous mercenary outfit who are apparently a "top-secret syndicate of elite mercenaries around the globe". This could only get more '90s if they put a robotic medic into the game that proclaims their teammates need to follow him if they want to live. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just what the setting sounds like.

At the time of writing, there was no mention of a super evil plot for world domination as there is no notion of a story mode either. The official website describes Rogue Company as a game where PvP is in the focus and players will "grab their weapon of choice and dive into iconic locations" where they will be presented with various competitive modes.

One interesting bit regarding Rogue Company is that the game will feature crossplay from the very beginning, along with cross-progression that will span across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Furthermore, the developers are aiming to deliver a 60 FPS performance on all available platforms.

As for the PC, Rogue Company has some really weird system requirements that will undoubtedly change before the launch. For example, it lists 16 GB RAM in the recommended settings even though it graphically can't compare to its peers such as Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The weirder part about RAM is that the minimum settings list exactly 6144 MB.

You can check all the minimum and recommended specifications on Rogue Company's store page . On that note, yes, it will be exclusive to Epic Games Store, with Hi-Rez stating this is because of Epic's commitment to crossplay and Rogue Company was built from scratch with that specific feature in mind.
