There's clearly an imbalance in the genres represented in massively multiplayer online games in the current market climate. Fantasy reigns supreme, but fans of sci-fi are going to see more MMO titles geared towards their interests in the coming years. One genre that's still underrepresented, though, is horror. The Secret World
is a horror MMO in development at Funcom
that we've heard precious little of. That is, until now.
Reporting for ShackNews
, Chris Faylor writes that Funcom's Ragnar Tørnquist
, game director for The Secret World
, will present at the Game Developers Conference
later this month. We're hoping his presentation will explain more of the game's premise. Presently, it's rumored to have secret society and Cthulu-esque elements to it
, but we're excited that we'll finally be able to hear more about The Secret World
when we cover GDC later this month.
