Funcom plans to make another Conan game as soon as Exiles leaves EA in 6 months.
I wonder what type of game the third Conan game will be, mobile maybe?

    I read an interesting interview. Their new strategy is to make more games that are more focused and smaller in scope and budget. I think the interview said they're working on two new games. It think it could work for them. I love what I've seen so far with SWL and would like to see more Shared World RPGs.

    Would be nice if they gave AoC the same treatment the did with TSW, Age of Conan Legends .

    A single player/co-op RPG that does a better job capturing Howards world would be nice. And no magic earrings please, I don't see Conan wearing stuff like that.

    Basing the world of the comics books with some influences from Tolkien and Greenwood does not help the IP at all. Something closer to the original books thanks.

    I can totally see a TCG built in the Conan universe. It's the "thing" these days for popular IPs to do that AND they'd get even broader cross-platform play by including mobile.

    If they're going to do a single player based on the comic world include Red Sonja. That would be more fun than coopting Tolkienesque features. A book story arc would be pretty cool too.

    SIGH....How about a sequel to Age of Conan back in 2008 it was ahead of its time and then they simply abandoned it......I would love to go back to AoC....

    I don't think they have plans or intentions on going back to making $50M+ mmorpgs anymore.

    A card game makes sense given the popularity right now. Blizzard, Bethesda and CD Projekt Red have cashed in on that. Conan is a popular IP. It would be a fit.

    TCG...oh sorry...CCG (collectible card games they got renamed to for digital card games) are a rip off. At least in real life TCG you can actually TRADE cards. not the con that digital card games are where the company forces you to pay 1000s or 10s of thousands or someone spent 100 thousand+ once on stupid collectible digital cards. And notice how they don't allow trading and removed the word trading from the whole part of the game that was in the name?

    Very smart way (because people are dumb enough to pay for it) to force people to buy cards instead of people trading cards where they (the company) don't gain money.

    Better money spent on real cards, cause at least you can TRADE them or physically collect them. 

    What is worth more

    Magic the Gathering Collectible Card

    or

    Crappy digital (for example) hearthstone card? that you can't trade or sell?

    Easy answer.

    And I'm 95% sure that the next Conan game is gonna be a lame collectible digital card rip off.

    If its a singleplayer RPG though, I'll be pleasantly surprised and that be epic. Especially if its open world like Skyrim and heavily moddable like Conan Exiles

    But if I wanted to collect cards. It would be REAL cards I can sell later on for either less than I paid or more, but at least I'd get something out of it. Or collect them physically. Or trade them.

    But Magic the Gathering is worth 100% more than any hearthstone card or any other similar card game.

    Can't fault them for being a game company... Especially with a powerful IP in hand. 

    I'd like to see an action/adventure game or dungeon crawler. 

    Collectible games probably aren't a horrible idea. Not my cup of tea, but they sell like hot cakes. A small downtown game store can stay afloat on them pretty well. Kids go nuts for those Magic and Heroclix stuff. I'm guessing that's digital now?

    I hope it's some kind of an RPG. What I'd like is something like Dark Souls, just with more story and set in Hyboria.

    But who am I kidding? It's most likely a mobile card game.

    Yeah, I bet Black Lotus is worth than an average European savings account. Besides, M:tG rocks! Ok, not every setting. I've huge reservations about Ixalan(the chosen Planeswalkers, Jace and Vraska, don't help it either). Amonkhet was nothing short of miraculous. But then again, I am a sucker for Egyptian theme. Kaladesh was also very interesting in its Steampunk, so sad I missed it(and those two decks, Ajani and Tezzeret fml).

    At first I was puzzled about how is this news to anyone, but then I checked the article:
    "Longtime Funcom watchers and MMORPG veterans already knew that Funcom was working on multiple games as part of its Conan franchise push, but some Conan Exiles players newly come to the studio’s games were hearing the news for the first time following Funcom’s quarterly financial report last week, leading to confusion and panic."

    So, some Exiles players are panicking... if only they knew FC's usual MO, that after launch they will redirect everything to the new game :lol:
    They even said so, openly: "We have an additional six months of Early Access, and no resources will be pulled from Conan Exiles until it’s finished". Until it's finished :lol:

    Would be nice if those who don't play a game would leave it alone and not cheering from the corner for its demise...

    Luckily it won't happen to AoC, FC pushed that aside years ago, now it's on official maintenance mode. For the online they already have Exiles, and the next game will be a turn-based, not an mmo.

    They won't ever have Red Sonja. They would have put her in AoC but Red Sonja is not a Howard creation and they could not secure the IP for her use. This was stated by the original AoC game director back around launch time.

    To be fair, CE isn't an MMO. They are under no obligation to keep adding to it once it's finished.
    Of course it needs to be a product that can stand on its own by then...
