Launch Date of The Secret World

Launch Date of The Secret World :

If you were the CEO of a major MMO developer and your studio had just finished a major game project, what would you do to celebrate? Buy some drinks? Throw a party? Resign from your position and step into a new advisory role? Apparently Funcom's former CEO Trond Arne Aas opted for the last one, as he has officially ceded the CEO post to former COO Ole Schreiner on the same day that The Secret World has launched.

Aas himself is remaining with the company as a chief strategy officer, working on the company's newly announced LEGO game as well as undisclosed other projects. His direct statements indicated that he feels the company is in a solid position on all fronts, meaning that now is the perfect time for him to step into a freer advisory position while still remaining involved with the future of Funcom. It's a surprising move, but we hope it's one that will benefit both Aas and Schreiner in the long run.


The Secret World is a highly anticipated upcoming MMORPG created by Funcom (Anarchy Online) and Ragnar Tørnquist (The Longest Journey, Dreamfall). It blends elements of mythological and modern day civilizations, along with a mix of dark fantasy and the supernatural, and has no character classes. In The Secret World, where urban legends, myths, and conspiracy theories are all true, the only question is: what do you do now?


•Three Secret Societies | Illuminati, the Dragon, and the Templar.
•Total Freedom of Play | Unparalleled freedom of character progression: no classes, no levels! Play however you want to play.
•Explore a Vibrant Setting | Adventure through cities and ghostly locations spanning across continents.
•Vast Array of Powers and Weapons | Hundreds of choices to choose from for outfitting your character, including simple clothing, firearms, and magic.


•Dragon | The most secretive of the societies, believing that the natural chaos of life, collapse and rebuilding, is the only path to harmony.
•The Illuminati | Constantly pushing for a New World Order, Illuminati agents work hard, play hard, and fight dirty.
•Templars | Soldiers known as the lions of the secret world, standing at the forefront of the war against darkness.
