Funcom is once again in the process of creating a multiplayer / survival game, but instead of barbarians and hydrographs, rival families and sandworms are common. In October , they announced that they were looking for new people to develop this Dune game, and now we know that they will also receive help from the studio Nukklear.
Nukklear has previously worked with games such as Everspace 2 , Destroy All Humans and Comanche , and on their website they write that the Dune game will be inspired by one of Funcom's other survival titles, Conan Exiles . According to Nukklear, the scope of the game has been significantly expanded thanks to an investment from Tencent, which is why they have been hired to provide assistance.
Kirk Lenke, CEO of Nukklear, had the following to say:
"We are grateful that Funcom has hired us to help bring Dune to a new medium. We have provided support to and collaborated on many projects over the years, but tackling Dune is without a doubt the biggest so far."
