Studio follows suit: More staff for new Dune game

On their website, the studio funcom numerous positions advertised. It is assumed that new staff is being sought for a previously untitled Dune game. First is here Open world multiplayer title which the studio announced in 2019. We also reported on this message at the time. However, three projects around the sci-fi universe are said to be in development.

Accordingly, the attempt to land new staff is by no means unreasonable. The strategy game Dune: Spice Wars is also in Steam Early Access. Although this is published by Funcom, it is developed by Shiro Games. There is no concrete information about the Dune Open World title yet. So far, investors have only been told that this is supposed to be a “more robust Conan Exiles”. Conan Exiles is the studio’s flagship title to date, which can be described as a survival multiplayer title. In accordance with the desert scenario, resource management plays a central role here.


Dune – Made in Germany

Just last December, we also reported that the project had significantly increased in size thanks to an investment by the Chinese tech giant Tencent. For example, a cooperation with the German developer studio nuclear announced. The attempt to increase one’s own capacities for the project is not new in itself. There is no specific release date or even a rough release period for the multiplayer title from Funcom.

Nothing official is known about the other two Dune projects from Funcom in mid-May 2022 either. It is certainly interesting that a lot has happened in terms of Dune since acquiring the license. After all, we are no longer talking about an aging brand with cult 80s films and strategy classics, but about a red hot movie franchise.

A rosy future

Accordingly, a new Conan Exiles-style Dune game could hit the zeitgeist perfectly, provided the marketing and quality are right. Conan Exiles, for example, was and is a relatively popular title, which also got a pretty good rating in our test.
