has published game director letters for all three of its MMOs this morning, and one of the topics on everyone's mind is of course the studio's reorganization. As it turns out, the dev teams for The Secret World
, Age of Conan
, and Anarchy Online
will all be operating out of the company's Raleigh, North Carolina facility which was previously the sole domain of the Funcom customer service team.
TSW's Joel Bylos
notes that the move will cause some "development turbulence," and that the game's DLC and update schedule will slow down temporarily as a result. He has more details on both the game's Issue #6 update and veteran rewards in his letter
. AoC's Craig Morrison
says that the fantasy title isn't going anywhere, although he also acknowledges some staff turnover due to the relocation. He also notes that having the game's dev team and community team in the same building will be a huge benefit
. Finally, Anarchy Online's update
echoes the first two, but game director Dave "Ilaliya
" Williams writes that the engine upgrade, server migration, and new player experience are all still on the table.
Funcom has also published an update on the restructuring process
on its main website.
