The lights are on
Funcom, developer of the recent MMO The Secret World, is going through a tumultuous time with a massive restructuring.
Games Industry International confirms the moves by Funcom, which includes "cost reductions through the closure and the consolidation of offices with the goal of creating a stronger unified organization that can take full advantage of the exciting opportunities that face the games industry as it steps into 2013 and beyond," according to the company.
Amidst the bad news, Funcom will keep The Secret World, Age of Conan, and Anarchy Online up and running. In fact, according to some stock notices from the company, The Secret World has seen a massive upswing in activity since it dropped its subscription fee, and sales of the game are up 30 percent.

Tough time for MMOs all around.

I'm still waiting for The Secret World to go down
