The company that brought us Conan Exiles has let slip that they are in the very early stages of a new single-player Conan title
Here we go with some exciting news as it looks like Funcom will be starting work on a new Conan IP in the near future. This would be the same company that just brought us the open world survival version of the franchise. Maybe you have heard of Conan Exiles? That would be the title that hit the PC, Xbox One, and PC that brought the franchise back into some extra level of popularity. Now it looks like they are moving forward with it and giving us just a bit more but with less of an open world side of things. At least in terms of requiring multiplayer as an MMO does.
All of this comes out of the most recent financial report where the company listed that their Oslo branch was heading into pre-production of a single-player Conan IP. You can see the snippet and full report down below. That is about where it all ends for now, sadly. At least we can all sit pretty knowing we will have more Conan The Barbarian in our lives. All while looking forward to a single-player version of it all. Maybe that means we will get more of the hero fantasy of it all besides the basic stuff we have had in the recent titles.
