Rumors abound that Funcom is planning on launching its highly anticipated MMO The Secret World on April 24th, 2012. This lines up with what Funcom has previously stated, that they would like to get the game launched in April of this year.
Funcom has addressed the rumors, but not necessarily debunked them:
Funcom has become aware of postings in various media stating that commercial launch of the online game The Secret World has been set to 24 April 2012. This date was communicated at a press event in the Funcom offices in Oslo today -- as an internal production date.
Funcom has previously announced the launch month for the game to be April 2012 and wants to stress that there is currently no change or update on the expected time for commercial launch of The Secret World. The company will announce the release date at a later stage through a stock notice and a formal press release when the date has been set.
Essentially, Funcom is not saying that the game won't come out on April 24th, but just that they can't confirm this to be a guaranteed street date for the game. Be sure to stay tuned to use here at Curse.com and check out The Secret World Wiki for more information on the game!
