Whenever I think about Funcom and Secret World, my blood pressure goes up. Here we have not just one of the most unique MMOs ever but one of the most unique video game stories ever devised, and the studio is letting it rot after rebooting it into a second version that it supports even less than the first game. Now we have two Secret Worlds out there with none of them getting new content, but hey, at least Conan’s getting Chop Chop!
It’s a mess and it’s one that I feel that Funcom is tempted to walk away from the more it invests in a wider portfolio of titles. There seems to be little-to-no movement on creating new, post-South Africa content for Legends, and the long-suffering community has little hope for the future other than a weird spin-off title for this fall.
I don’t know. I don’t think about it most days. But maybe you have a better idea what Funcom should be doing with this property. Should the studio make good on its vow to support Legends? Add South Africa to the legacy server? Should it reboot the game a second time just to see what MJ would do? Should it put it out of its misery if Funcom isn’t going to make more missions? What do you think?
