Funcom Delays The Secret World's Issue #2 Update

Posted Fri, Aug 24, 2012 by Martuk

It’s been a rough week for Funcom. Earlier this week the Funcom announced that it had initiated a cost reduction plan that resulted in layoffs affecting up to half of the company, some of which are only temporary. As a result, this month’s content update that was scheduled to launch on August 28th for The Secret World with Issue #2: Digging Deeper, has been delayed until September 11th, 2012.

As you may know, this week has been a challenging one for everyone at Funcom. We initiated a process of reducing costs after the launch of The Secret World and this has naturally affected the production schedule as we work on readjusting the team and our internal development processes. As such, we have had to give ourselves a little more time to wrap up Issue #2 and the new release date for this update is September 11th, 2012.

We appreciate your understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience. We are definitely eager to get this update out the door so that you guys can finally get your hands on that awesome rocket launcher! We will also continue to push out regular content like announced before. This small delay is merely due to the re-organization and assessment of processes that has been initiated. We are working hard to get back on track as soon as possible.

I just stopped playing after my 30 days because no game cards were available for Funcom or Ea's store. I'd thought for sure since EA was involved they'd have game time cards for Thesecretworld...but noo...oh well, hope I wasn't the cause of layoff because they refused to make game cards available!
