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.

I am rereading the Dune series now, currently on Book 6 (Chapterhouse Dune). I'm even going to read the son's books 7 and 8, which I skipped the last time.
Before you read 7 & 8, I would suggest reading the prequels, it will helps complete the picture....

Specifically:
The Butlerian Jihad
The Machine Crusade
The Battle of Corrin

Outside the original novel which may be the greatest sci-fi novel ever written, books 5 & 6 are the best in the series, followed closely by 4.

Yeah, I started reading that prequel trilogy, finished the Butlerian Jihad, and had to stop. The writing is mediocre at best, and it feels like they could have compressed those three novels into maybe 1 novel. I get it, the AIs and pseudo AIs were pretty genocide-y, let's wrap it up.

I have 6, 7 and 8 to read or reread still, and I'm in the middle of Neal Stephenson's new novel, Termination Shock. Book 9 (the last novel, Leviathan Falls) of the Expanse also showed up at my house the other day, and that'll probably have precedence over finishing the Dune prequels as well. I may be dragging my feet for awhile on those, honestly.
