NUKKLEAR was also awarded a government grant to boost the development process.
A German developer NUKKLEAR is partnering with another developer Funcom to create a survival game set in the world of Frank Herbert’s Dune. NUKKLEAR will be taking on a co-development role, helping to develop a title previously announced by Funcom. The studio was also recently awarded approximately 1.6 million EUR as part of the German Federal Government Grant. The grant will be used to support NUKKLEAR’s development and production work on this project.
Back in 2019, Funcom had secured the rights to make a game based on the popular sci-fi franchise, Dune. The untitled project will take inspiration from Funcom’s most successful title, Conan Exiles, and be an online multiplayer survival game.
“We’re grateful to Funcom for bringing us on to help bring Dune to a new audience. We’ve supported and collaborated on many projects over the years, but taking on Dune is by far the biggest yet,” said Kirk Lenke, CEO of NUKKLEAR. “Our team welcomes the challenge and is confident in the expertise that NUKKLEAR brings to the table.”
