Yes! but I still believe that we won't have an April launch.

@Valdur So when April comes and the game is on the shelves will you eat your own words then? Cause honestly I've seen you saying this in at least a couple of articles.

@Valdur Agreed. We haven't much game play videos. And not a lot of additional information. Either they're not ready or they think they got something so big that they can drop it on us a month before release maybe? I've never seen a company hold back on so much info, so close to a release. But this is "the secret world", so maybe this lack of information is par for the course?

I'd rather them do it properly. Don't care about the release date.

I think it's amusingly ironic how Funcom has marketed this game with cutesy alternate reality games and deliberately tried to maintain an aura of secrecy and rumors around it and now they're squashing rumors and trying to keep things as clear as possible.

Since EA is co-publisher, they better back off on releasing early. I'm perfectly happy if this game get's released later in the year.

Funcom needs this game to be golden and from the looks of it, I'm more excited about this game then GW2.

@stamps79 EA, in this instance, actually refers to EA Partners, which is a subdivision of EA. The subdivision takes no active role in game production or timelines, and basically assists in worldwide distribution and logistics. If Funcom says they need more time, EA Partners is hardly in any position to decline it, as that isn't their role.

: ) Pretty sure Funcom'll get all the time they feel like they need.

I know it doesn't make a ton of sense from a business perspective but I'd love to see some kind of stealth launch fitting with the theme of the game. Have people "discover" the game using different forms of media.

This has been the rumour for months, and NOW they debunk it? Don't they realize this will only fuel the fires of conspiracy even more? Has that been their plan all along? Or is this a pre-emptive excuse for not making that date because they're not ready yet? Why am I asking all these questions? Would someone please stop me?

You know what would be a GREAT date of release?

12-21-12

Not only do we have weird matching numbers that that is the date the Mayan Calendar ends this year....so, the world supposedly ends then, fitting into the game quite nicely IMHO.


Of course, if you *believe* such predictions, or if it turns out to be right, well....that may suck but...heck, maybe a few brave souls will pick up a copy and play on the servers on the last day of this planet? ;p

Launch can't be too soon. Closed beta for the outside community hasn't started yet. Or it has and Funcom forgot to invite us who got it as part of our AoC package, boo.

@Solude I am starting to think the "April" date was just food for the hype monster.As was the buy the AoC deal for beta access but hey if they let those that did the yearly sub for TSW beta key in at least a day earlier than those who didnt technically they kept their word.=p
