Snippet -

What’s been going on at Funcom these past few years?

Funcom has a colorful history of ups and downs and the last few years have been no exception. We’ve been transforming the company to match the evolution of the industry and the new strategy of smaller and larger games is a reflection of that. It’s good to see that the strategy is working with both the smaller games allowing us to learn and experiment with different ideas and with the first of our larger games, Conan Exiles, having a great start.

The Nordic game development scene has seen quite a growth spurt as of late, for example with the growth of Paradox and DICE, and also with smaller studios like Playdead and Image & Form. What kind of mission statement is Funcom working from amidst this?

We believe in making games we love and games we care about. It’s great to see the development of the Nordic game development community and to be part of it, with very creative and successful studios working on a wide variety of games. We’ve been around since 1993 and the company has gone through some significant changes during that time. We’re not the company we were back then and we’re not the company we were five years ago. We think it’s important to keep up with the changing times as long as we can keep focusing on what’s important to us: making great, immersive games.
