Three new Conan the Barbarian games are on the way

Funcom has announced that they have entered into a new publishing agreement in order to developer three new games based on the Conan the Barbarian franchise. All three games will be announced this year with the first coming next month in January.

Although specific platforms were not mentioned, we know that the games will come to both PC and consoles from the comments by Conan Properties

Working with Funcom through the years has been a rewarding and very enjoyable journey,” said Fredrik Malmberg, CEO of Conan Properties. “Making them our preferred partner for all PC and console games based on ‘Conan the Barbarian’ is the next step on that great journey. Funcom has shown they are more than capable of managing the rich heritage of Conan and to breathe new life into the world of Hyboria, and we are thrilled to be working together on new, exciting projects”

One thing that was not mentioned was the type of genre and overall setup that the game will utilize. Based on the game and its history, however, most likely it should stick to a third person action/adventure or RPG style similar to Shadow of Mordor or The Witcher 3.
