It will be developed by Modiphious and it will use its in-house system 2d20.

I guess that they will do like Mutant Chronicles and Infinity and have a beta to "shape" 2d20 toward Conan's flavor of sword and sorcery (that reminds me that I have to read the Infinity beta and convince the group to play at least a one-shot).

Here the official page:http://www.modiphius.com/conan.html

Modiphius Entertainment announces the definitive sword & sorcery roleplaying game, planned for launch August 2015

KNOW, oh prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of....

Modiphius is proud to announce a licensing deal with Conan Properties to publish Robert E. Howard’s CONAN Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of. This is CONAN roleplaying as Robert E. Howard wrote it – savage pulp adventure battling ancient horrors in the Hyborian Age! We plan to bring the game right back to its roots, focusing on the original stories by Robert E. Howard.

Modiphius has scored a leading team of Hyborian Age scribes to chronicle these adventures including Timothy Brown (designer of the Dark Sun setting for Dungeons & Dragons), award-winning Robert E. Howard scholar and essayist Jeffrey Shanks (Conan Meets the Academy, REH: Two-Gun Raconteur, Critical Insights: Pulp Fiction, The Dark Man: The Journal of REH Studies, Zombies from the Pulps!), Jason Durall (Basic Roleplaying, Serenity, The Laundry), Chris Lites (Paizo, Savage Worlds, Omni, Slate), and many more to be announced.

Players and GM’s alike will feel the might of the 2d20 game system, the cinematic roleplaying rules devised by Jay Little (Star Wars: Edge of the Empire) for Mutant Chronicles, and sharpened up for intense sword and sorcery action. The 2d20 system lets players experience the true pulp adventure of the CONAN stories.

Howard expert Jeffrey Shanks will approve all content, ensuring it remains true to the spirit of the source material and brings the Hyborian Age to life. World-famous CONAN artist Sanjulian (Conan Ace Paperbacks, Vampirella, Eerie, Creepy) has been commissioned, as well as Carl Critchlow (Batman/Judge Dredd, Anderson: Psi Division). Joining them are other CONAN greats such as Mark Schultz (The Coming of Conan, Xenozoic Tales, Prince Valiant), Tim Truman (Dark Horse Conan, Grimjack, Jonah Hex), Phroilan Gardner (Age of Conan, World of Warcraft), Alex Horley (Blizzard, Heavy Metal, Magic: The Gathering) and many more.

Modiphius is working with other Conan Properties licensing partners including Monolith Board Games, creator of the hit CONAN boardgame which has surpassed $2 million on Kickstarter, and Funcom, creator of the long-running, free-to-play, MMO Age of Conan. Modiphius plans some select supplements including missions designed for the Monolith boardgame, as well as floorplan tile sets allowing you to use Conan miniatures in your roleplaying adventures!

Modiphius is already working on the roleplaying corebook for Robert E. Howard’s CONAN Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of to be released this Fall. A Kickstarter is planned for the summer to fund a larger range of roleplaying supplements, campaigns, and accessories to follow the core book.

Ho, Dog Brothers! (and Sisters) Don your mail, hone your blade, and pray to whatever fickle gods might listen. Harken to the sound of clanging steel, cries of battle, and death curses spat from bloody, frothing lips! Tread the jeweled thrones of the earth at www.modiphius.com/conan or die in towers of spider-haunted mystery. Crom cares not!
Great news!

So I looked up this 2d20 system: There are still people making roll under games?

I'm going to give it a try. It will give me an alternate use for all the minis I'm going to get from the Conan board game. At the very least this book will be good to look at. I just hope the first printing of this new game will actually be proof-read!

Crazy. It's almost like roll-under systems work, or something.

Cheap points. And there's a big friggin' difference between an off-the-cuff forum post and a book you expect people to drop fifty to sixty bucks on.

Unless it's Castles & Crusades. They never spell check anything.

Well, that's a good question. Does it? I'm not familiar, and their webpage doesn't offer much in the way of convincing me it's not some weird gimmick.

Given that Jeff Shanks and Mark Finn are working on the project, it's going to get some serious eyeballs on it.

The Mutant Chronicles beta is available on Drivethru. With that you can get a taste of the system.

I'm not sure if they are still sending beta files of the Infinity rpg but with both at hand you can check how they can customize the 2d20 system to fit a setting (I still have to read the Infinity files but I have read there are difference with Mutant Chronicles).
