Is Funcom competing with the upcoming game for Dune? Funcom's CEO Rui Casais said that Dune creates a kind of more ambitious and robust Conan Exiles.
As Funcom explains, the game's release is too Dune, the desert planet, a few years away. And that's obviously a good thing, at least for the survival game Conan Exiles.
Will Dune become a Conan Exiles 2.0?
In an interview with investors, Funcom's CEO Rui Casais described the Dune game as a more ambitious and robust Conan Exiles. It was known earlier that we would get a new survival game. However, it is unusual that a kind of Conan Exiles 2.0 is created.
Conan Exiles is a survival game set in the desert (with some oases). Dune seems to be going in exactly the same direction. The planet Arrakis is a desert. There are only a few places where water can be found. In addition, like Conan Exiles, Dune is planned as a Games-as-a-Service title. New content should therefore appear regularly and microtransactions and multiplayer are likely to play a role.
We'll see if Dune and Conan Exiles cannibalize each other when Dune comes out in a few years and Conan Exiles is too similar.
