Age of Conan Delayed  by Craig D at 09:58

Funcom have announced that their much anticipated MMOG Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures has been put back to a March 25th 2008 release. The extra time will be used for 'honing, polishing and improving the heralded qualities of the game'.

"We naturally regret that we have to push back 'Age of Conan’. However, after careful consideration, and analysis of recent Beta feedback, we believe that the new release date is in the best interest of the gamers, our company and our owners," said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom. "We are fully committed to delivering games with absolute qualities, and in the current MMO marketplace we know that only the best is good enough to truly succeed. With the new release date we have therefore given ourselves more time to meet and deliver on the massive expectations for the game. We are certain that our choice will ultimately pay off, and that all 'Age of Conan’ players will get a special online experience."

"We are honored by the immense reception our game is constantly getting, with an astounding amount of positive press coverage, awards and magazine covers, but we still see that we need to polish some aspects of the game even further, especially when it comes to the entry barriers," said Gaute Godager, founder of Funcom and Producer / Director on 'Age of Conan’. "With the added development time we can now deliver something even more unique and powerful, something which is worthy of the incredible Conan legacy."
