Too bad Guild Wars 2 will be coming out around that time... Nobody will be playing Secret World.

@(Unverified) No doubt GW2 will over shadow SW. There will be plenty of people to play it. It might not be huge, but then again The Secret World was never a huge franchise to begin with. They obviously aren't going for the big bucks. They are just playing it out, trying to do something a little unique and interesting. They tried the triple A approach and failed, so now they are trying to be a sleeper hit, and build from there.

Getting both of the most promising mmo's their payment models easly allow me to run both aswel, not that it cost a fortune to have two mmo's running at the same time.

About origin, funcom deals with the digital publishing, EA does the box sales according to official investor reports.

I think funcom needs to launch a grand scale "demo" event (stop calling it open beta really), just to renew some of the lost trust people got during either AO or AoC.

@(Unverified) Seeing that I don't need to subscribe to GuildWars 2 I plan to play both. That's the nice thing about Guild Wars 2 is that it doesn't prevent you from subscribing to another MMO.

@(Unverified) Yes no one will ever play any other MMO ever again because GW2 is so win. /eyeroll

I'm actually beta testing TSW it's fun and it has come a long way in beta. TSW will do quite well, it's a solid title.

I'll be playing it. GW2 looks great but I'm getting a little burned out on the whole swords and sorcery thing. Funcom is daring to do something different here, at least in terms of setting.

I'm guessing the hype will disappoint me when it comes to GW2 and I'll be annoyed at another over hyped game so I'm sure I'll give TSW a shot.

Well, originally I was going to get TSW, but if TSW releases too close to GW2 (or after GW2), then I will most likely skip it.

GW2 is the game I really want to play anyway, and given it's lack of subscription, it makes financial sense to get GW2 first in any case, and jump to other games only after getting as much fun as possible out of GW2.

@Acidbaron
so, 1 fortune = 2 movie tickets per month? For a service that provides entertainment 24/7? $15 is a steal. Try doing anything else more than 1x per month for $15

@(Unverified) LOVE IT. The first comment about TSW is a GW2 fan proclaiming that TSW will fail because of GW2...
