Funcom's Dune Game Goes NUKKLEAR

Funcom announces more about the Dune survival game that's part of its from 2019 deal with Legendary Entertainment and Herbert Properties to create games based on the classic Frank Herbert sci-fi novels. Word is development is being shared by NUKKLEAR, the German studio behind the recently launched Comanche. This fits with the announcement that the scope of the Dune game expanded as part of a deal with Tencent. Here's word:
NUKKLEAR will be taking on a co-development role, helping to realize the expanded scope of the title previously announced by Funcom. The studio was also recently awarded approximately 1.6 million EUR by the BMVI (Bundesministerium für Verkehr und Digitale Infrastruktur) as part of the “Computerspieleförderung des Bundes” German Federal Government Grant. The grant will be used to support in part NUKKLEAR’s development and production work on this project.

In 2019, Funcom announced that it had secured the rights to make a game based on the popular sci-fi franchise, Dune. The untitled project will take inspiration from Funcom’s most successful title, Conan Exiles, and be an online multiplayer survival game. After investment from Tencent, the Dune project greatly expanded its scope, and NUKKLEAR has been brought on to assist in completing it.

You realize the Dune movie is as close to the source material (the book) as the director could get.

Yeah, but Funcom making a survival MMO isn't gonna get even close. And if they tried to do that that'd be way worse still no?
How would a survival MMO even work? There was only ever one house on Dune at a time and it was typically the strongest or the one that showed it could manage spice production. They typically didn't start from scratch. They assumed the infrastructure from the previous fief. Having a bunch of independent players running around doesn't make sense in the context of the story. Unless the game will be from the Fremen point of view. That might work. But it would only work if players had to work together as the Fremen were forced to survive the elements.
