Independent developer and publisher Funcom today announced that the upcoming massively multiplayer game ‘The Secret World’ will launch on June 19th, 2012.
Originally scheduled to launch in April, Funcom now intends to spend the additional development time focusing on polish and tweaking to maximize the potential of the game.
More than 750,000 gamers are now registered as beta testers, which is significantly higher than Funcom’s previous MMO ‘Age of Conan’ had at the same point in development.
“Allowing for even more time to polish the game really shows just how much faith Funcom as a company has in ‘The Secret World’ and how committed we are to making it the best it can be,” says Creative Director and Senior Producer Ragnar Tørnquist. “The additional time will also allow us to carry out even more quality beta testing, and soon we will also be announcing several public beta events where hundreds of thousands of gamers will get to test the game prior to launch.”
The Secret World will be published by Electronic Arts for Windows PC.
