The upcoming release has brought up the question that has to be asked. Has Funcom learned from their two previous failed launches? Funcom is the same developer who brought us the legendary game Anarchy Online and controversial Age of Conan. Both had remarkably similar launches with unfinished content across the board, extreme moderation of anything negative about the games in their respective forums, and overall a feel of an unfinished game. The director behind both games and their launches, Gaute Godager, left Funcom in 2008. Only after Age of Conan’s own players created a petition to fire Mr. Godager. The main director behind The Secret world is a fresh face named Ragnar Tørnquists. Only beta access will give us the chance to see. Here’s to hoping.
