New Conan Game Planned

Funcom announces a new agreement with Conan Properties, following their collaboration on Age of Conan, the barbaric MMORPG launched in 2008. The Norwegian developer says they will unveil three new games over the course of 2016, the first being a new Conan the Barbarian game based on this agreement that they will officially unveil next month. Here's an outline of their plans:
Funcom is excited to announce that the company has entered into an agreement with Conan Properties, making it the preferred partner for all PC and console games based on the 'Conan the Barbarian' brand and the world of Hyboria. The two companies have already enjoyed a long and prosperous relationship, having successfully brought to market Funcom's critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online game 'Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures' back in 2008.

"We are tremendously excited to be strengthening our relationship with Conan Properties," said Funcom CEO Rui Casais. "'Conan the Barbarian' is undoubtedly one of the world's greatest and most recognizable fantasy heroes, and as game developers, working with such a character and being able to draw from the fantastically detailed world of Hyboria is nothing short of a dream come true."

As Funcom communicated earlier this year, the company will be announcing three new games in 2016. The first of these games will be based on the 'Conan the Barbarian' brand and will be announced to the public in January next year.

"Working with Funcom through the years has been a rewarding and very enjoyable journey," said Fredrik Malmberg, CEO of Conan Properties. "Making them our preferred partner for all PC and console games based on 'Conan the! Barbarian' is the next step on that great journey. Funcom has shown they are more than capable of managing the rich heritage of Conan and to breathe new life into the world of Hyboria, and we are thrilled to be working together on new, exciting projects."
