Conan Exiles recoups development costs in a week on Steam Early Access


Norwegian developer Funcom struggled for years creating a hit game. Age of Conan didn’t quite do it, nor did The Secret World, nor did Lego Minifigures Online. Things got tough. But Funcom may have at last found the hit in new sandbox survival game Conan Exiles.

Conan Exiles sold 320,000 units on Steam Early Access in one week, priced 26.99. It has already recouped development costs, according to a Funcom statement.

CEO Rui Casais commented: “Funcom has gone through some challenging times in recent years and seeing the game we have poured so much time and effort into gain this amount of traction so quickly is very invigorating for everyone who works here.

“This is just the start of the Early Access adventure and we will do whatever it takes to make sure Conan Exiles turns into a fully-fledged game that has something to offer new and old fans of both Conan and survival games.”
