According to Kotaku ‘The Secret World’ just had half it’s staff laid off. As someone playing and REALLY enjoying my time with the game this makes me very sad. I always knew the game would probably only last around 3 months before I moved on, but I had planned to play it again in a few months after they’d added some more content. Now, it sounds like content is going to take even LONGER to get produced. I’d classify the game as a fun story driven MMO that you can lose a good couple months in, but it just never got the numbers it needed. I guess it’ll be going ‘Free-To-Play’ even faster than I thought. Kinda glad I didn’t get that lifetime subscription they offered.
Still, if you want something a bit different this is a great, fun, theme park MMO. If you can get it cheap I highly recommend it for a month or two of play.
I has a sad. 🙁
