Sad to see this about Funcom’s “The Secret World”

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. 🙁
