Thanks to the layoffs at Funcom due to the tepid release figures of The Secret World, the second update "Digging Deeper" has been delayed from the 28th August to the 11th September.


The publisher was frank about the reasons behind the delay. In a statement, it admitted, "As you may know, this week has been a challenging one for everyone at Funcom. We initiated a process of reducing costs after the launch of The Secret World and this has naturally affected the production schedule as we work on readjusting the team and our internal development processes."

The Secret World is a modern day occult/conspiracy MMO that was launched on the 19th June. Strategy Informer awarded the game an 8.0/10 score in its review.

How is this MMPO going by the way? The concept intrigued me.

Im liking it alot, very different from other MMOs out there. There's a hint of old school MMO in it, IF you can keep your hands off the walkthroughs on the internet.

The best thing about this game is definatly the investigation missions, there's no waypoints when doing these, and you have to figure things out for yourself (or cheat and read a walkthrough) but i like the challenge of these missions, they remind me of the good ol' days before WoW.

I believe Funcom is doing a 3 day trial or something now. If you want, you could try that out, make a character on grim and ill Show you around :).
