Funcom has just announced what appears to be excellent news for investors and gamers alike: Conan Exiles has sold 320,000 copies worldwide — that’s net sales, which excludes refunds and chargebacks. It gets better.
“In addition, all of the costs directly related to this game have been recouped and the project is now operationally profitable. […] Direct costs are considered to be those related to salaries, social security and equipment for the development, technology and marketing teams, external PR & Marketing expenses and other external consulting or licensing expenses directly attributable to the project.”
Work on the PC early access version — and the planned Xbox One edition — “continues as planned.” PS4 dev begins later in 2017.
The company’s full investor report for Q4 2016 is due out at the end of February.
