According to a post in a blog by one of Funcom’s designers, Funcoms upcoming MMO The Secret World is being pushed back. It seems the game is undergoing some major changes which may result in a delay in the release.
Changes include a gameplay redesign in order to make the game “to stand out and be remembered. To not be just another MMORPG, a WoW clone, of which there are already too many.
The game will feature an original setting created by Funcom, with contemporary elements as well as “magic, myths, conspiracies and dark horrors”. The game uses the same engine as Age of Conan and “takes place on Earth in the present day”.
