Funcom to announce three new games in 2016

Watch out world: Funcom is cranking up its game factory for 2016.

In the studio’s Q3 2015 report, Funcom said that it would be announcing the creation of three new titles — one “large” and two small — next year: “In line with the company’s strategy, prototyping and concept development for new titles is underway, with the first new game to be announced during early 2016 and two additional games throughout later that year.”

Funcom needs a good future source of revenue, as its earnings continued to decline to $2,195,000 for the quarter. The decline was attributed to “a gradual and expected decrease in sales from the current live games.”

The Park is too recent to show up on the report in regard to revenue, although Funcom said that it was a success in developing and marketing on a small budget while strengthening The Secret World’s IP.

The studio said that it’s written off LEGO Minifigures Online due to the game’s underperformance and will be proceeding with a multi-prong strategy to develop both big and small games that leverage Funcom’s technology and IPs.

Funcom is the Michael Jordan of game ideas and the Tim Tebow of execution.

Lateris Honestly I hope not. :/ I think they could be much more successful going back to single player games with high adventure and story telling.

Oleg Chebeneev Well Yea, but the advertising is on them. If they publish it i’m pretty sure they want to see a ROI at some point.

I am going to guess that it will not be MMORPG related? Just a guess.

DPandaren All they have are MMOs? They literally released a single player game around three weeks ago. I agree with the hope for some more side games, some more single player story-driven games.
