Did you know that Funcom's The Secret World
was due to release "in the next few months
?" We didn't either, nor apparently did Funcom
despite a published report to the contrary in The Montreal Gazette
. The article touches on Funcom's relationship with Electronic Arts
and its disappointment with Age of Conan's
performance relative to World of Warcraft's.
It also intimates that The Secret World
(developed at the company's Montreal studio) is nearing completion.
"This must have been a misquote or a misunderstanding of some sorts. We have never communicated a release date for
The Secret World," said a Funcom spokesperson in a statement to Eurogamer
Development on The Secret World
is ongoing, and the game features a co-mingling of contemporary horror, conspiracy, and fantasy elements with Lovecraftian themes and skill-based progression.
