Further details for the Dune open-world survival game, like a release date or platforms, weren’t confirmed at this time.

This is the first of apparently several Dune games that Funcom has lined up, much like their obsession with the Conan franchise and full acquisition of its IP.

Here’s the word from Funcom:

Frank Herbert’s timeless sci-fi masterpiece and the 2021 Oscar-winning movie adaptation have inspired whole generations with the Dune universe, and we are no exception. It is the perfect setting for the multiplayer open world survival genre.

Since the ‘90s, Funcom has honed its craft creating unforgettable experiences in captivating universes and delivering lasting success with games like Conan Exiles. Having built a team of experienced developers from across over 30 nationalities, we now seek new voices to add to our most ambitious project yet, set on Arrakis.

Join us as we build a Dune for all fans to realize the dream of traversing its ever-shifting landscape, sand under fingernails and spice in the air.
