If Funcom does make that target it will be interesting to see how well that plays with the upcoming launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic on December 20th, which is also published by The Secret World's co-publisher, EA.
But don’t get too hopeful, Caron does state that the beta may arrive a bit later, which would stand to reason given that you wouldn't expect to have such a long open beta phase for a game like The Secret World that's scheduled to launch in April 2012. This could also be a simple case of mistaken communication. Either way, stay tuned and we'll update you if more news becomes available.
Caron also stated that The Secret World will retail for around $50-$60 and that the subscription fee will be around $15-$17 per month.
