News – Funcom secures Dune IP

Funcom announced in its quarterly report that it has secured rights to the Dune Intellectual Property in a six year exclusive deal that will see them release a minimum of three games for PC and console. They have also stated that one of these will be an MMO.

Funcom’s other and current MMO Conan Exiles might give some kind of indication of what to expect from their treatment of this very beloved classic science fiction universe. Talking of the Conan franchise, Funcom are looking to release their upcoming Conan Unconquered in the coming months. Unconquered looks to be a They Are Billions-style defensive RTS that will feature optional co-op gameplay!

All in all, the near future looks very exciting for the Norwegian publisher!
