Today, Funcom announced a new strategy game set in the Conan the Barbarian universe called "Conan Unconquered." According to the publisher, it's developed by the Command & Conquer veterans at Petroglyph Games, and is the first-ever strategy experience set in the savage world. Petroglyph is known for original strategy games such as Dune 2 as well.
Conan Unconquered should release during the second quarter of 2019 on PC. It's unclear if it's coming to consoles. The title requires players to build the ultimate stronghold and assemble an unconquerable army that can stand against wave after wave of enemies in increasing numbers and difficulty. Conan Unconquered is inspired by the "Black Colossus" story. A godly command places Conan in charge of a mighty army tasked with saving a haunted princess and the kingdom of "Khoraja" from a mysterious sorcerer.
Funcom head Rui Casais said, "It is both a professional and personal honor to be working with the genre veterans at Petroglyph. My first love is strategy games and I spent endless hours playing Dune 2 back in the day. The current team at Petroglyph is responsible for some truly great strategy games, including Star Wars: Empire at War, and I can think of no one better to bring to life the first ever strategy game set in the world of Conan the Barbarian."
Funcom previously developed Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures and Conan Exiles, the latter which has become the bestselling and fastest-selling game in the company's history. Aside from this strategy titles, Funcom is also working on a single-player Conan game that will probably be revealed in 2019.
