The Secret World delayed by “several months”

Oh Funcom, loving you is a roller coaster of a relationship. Your Age of Conan MMO was a breath of fresh air, which you keep supporting even when you had to give away game time to prove it. You then give us a taste of your upcoming project, The Secret World, only to break our hearts.

Announcing today that the company is laying off 20 percent of their workforce, Funcom says that the conspiracy themed MMO will now be delayed by “several months.” With no firm release date, projections put the game to hit shelves sometime in 2011.

We suppose our PAX coverage of the game will have to suffice until we get some firm release info. Must. Read. Slowly.
