Remember when Funcom promised in January that their delay of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
to October was guaranteed as the "final launch date
" for the MMO? Well, they totally lied
. Age of Conan
has been delayed again until next March. This time around they aren't silly enough to say it's the "final" time. Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas said, "We believe that the new release date is in the best interest of the gamers, our company and our owners."
Our time with the game has been fine, but a ten minute demo doesn't give enough of an answer to how this game will avoid the MMO trap of making players
not realize they are "waging a war against the mind-numbing effects of repetition
." Obviously the developers think they need more time and publisher Eidos seems to be on board with that idea. Funcom now has until next March to announce another delay.
