After increasingly bad news
out of Funcom in regard to The Secret World
's unexpectedly low sales, Creative Director and Senior Producer Ragnar Tørnquist
penned a State of the Game address
today outlining the studio's plans for keeping The Secret World
just as it is.
"We're not going to play it safe," Tørnquist assures players. "We won't be introducing classes or levels, elves or dwarves, and regardless of the competition, we won't back down from our original vision. We're going to keep doing what we're good at. We'll continue to push the boundaries, and we'll keep reinventing the wheel (quite literally). Five years ago, we set out to revolutionise the genre, and the revolution has just begun."
Tørnquist points to a "bright future" for The Secret World
with the upcoming second issue
, named Digging Deeper, and a third yet-unnamed issue that will tie in with the game's Halloween event.
