Funcom and SCi/Eidos have announced that SCi/Eidos will be the publisher for boxed copies of Age of Conan: Hyborean Adventures, slated for release between March and May of 2007 for the PC. SCi/Eidos and Funcom also plan to bring the game to the consoles.

"We are very excited to work with SCi/Eidos on the publishing of Age of Conan," said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom. "SCi/Eidos has proven their strength in PR, marketing, and distribution with series like Hitman and Tomb Raider, and we couldnít be more pleased with our co-publishing partner. Our two companies share a strong commitment and ambition for the game, and we feel certain the partnership will increase the likelihood of success and the total sales potential for the game."

"We have strong faith in the sales potential for Age of Conan, and by combining the knowledge and reach of both SCi/Eidos and Funcom we believe the game will become a great success," said Ian Livingstone, Product Acquisition Director of Eidos. "The many E3 awards, the extensive worldwide press coverage, the vibrant online player community, the strong global brand and Funcomís extensive MMO experience are all factors which bode well for the future of Age of Conan, and we will do our best to contribute to making it into a successful MMO franchise in the years to come."
