The release of Funcom’s Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures has slipped by a further eight weeks so that the developer can offer a "more polished MMO experience".
Originally expected to launch in 2007, then in late March 2008, Funcom has now announced a fresh delay that means the game won’t see the light of day until May 20, 2008.
“Despite great feedback on vital aspects like immersion, fun factor and the exciting combat system, the management of Funcom has decided to polish the game even more. Eight weeks of development work is therefore added to stress game systems and polish the game further leading up to launch,” read a company statement explaining the new delay.
“The companies standing apart in the gaming market today are those with a relentless drive to achieve quality. Even though we regret delaying the launch, I am certain we made the right choice. I hope that our followers and fans will support our decision, and respect our commitment to quality,” added Age of Conan producer and game director Gaute Godager.
