Age of Conan Developer Cuts 20% of Workforce, Delays Next MMO

poor AoC.  They should just pull the plug now.  I played AoC for a year, and was very successful ingame with the Black Hand guild.  However, the game sadly became redundant and worthless.  Too bad, the game really had potential, but Funcom lost sight of both the customer and the product. 



Funcom made many promises about AoC that it simply wasn't able to deliver.  Despite their claims to the contrary, the world they created was bland far less savage than the one created by Howard.  The game started out with a "mature" rating and gradually slipped ever closer to the "teen" rating, presumably in an attempt to increase its audience.  It seems to have had the opposite effect.  I cancelled my sub (pre-ordered collector's edition, no less) a couple months ago and I don't miss it yet.  It was a great idea, poorly executed.





Maybe they should stop focusing on MMO crap and start on the Dreamfall sequel.



Shame realy AoC isnt a bad game at all .had to unsube do to rl problems but hope to return in a few months.Still one of the best looking mmo's imho.An yes their will be some happy about this round of layoffs.

"Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing." — Robert E. Howard, The Tower of the Elephant (1933)
