Remember earlier this year, when Funcom announced in its Q4 2017 financial presentation that its North Carolina branch had greenlit a “cooperative online shooter” using the Heroic Signatures IP – and it was supposed to go into pre-production last spring?
It looks like production has ramped up. MOP reader Hikari noticed that the company’s hiring page has several newish posting for programmers, engineers, and QA working on what’s clearly the same game. Here’s one:
“Funcom is looking for an enthusiastic, talented and versatile game programmer to join its development team in North Carolina, working on a new cooperative online shooter game with a Premium business model using an IP from Heroic Signatures. The Gameplay /Console Programmer at Funcom, Inc. will implement game features and systems within the Unreal game engine for development on PC and most importantly on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles.”
The “premium business model” stuff is new, as is confirmation of console support. Heroic Signatures, mind you, encompasses multiple IPs and settings, including Conan, though we assume it’s not Conan or they’d just say so since they’re already working on yet another Conan title plus Mutant Year Zero, plus TV series for both Conan and the Secret World franchises.
