SCi/Eidos takes on Conan

MMO co-publishing deal signed.

It may not feature the 1980's "charm" of Arnold Schwarzenegger's acting, but Conan and his barbaric adventuring style is definitely heading to PCs next year thanks to a co-publishing deal between Funcom and SCi/Eidos.

Putting "strong faith in the sales potential" of the MMO title, SCi/Eidos will publish the boxed product of Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures, while Funcom get to keep the digital distribution rights and fill their coffers with subscription fees.

Under the terms of the deal, SCi/Eidos will distribute the game throughout North America, Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, and the game is slotted in for a release some time between March and May 2007.

Funcom will be taking care of operating the servers, providing customer service and generally managing the MMO, and both companies are said to be collaborating on bringing the game to consoles at some point in the not too distant future.
