The Secret World Content Update Delayed Due to Staff Layoffs

Funcom has announced that The Secret World‘s second content update has been delayed by a few weeks due to the recent staff cuts which hit the studio.

Issue 2: Digging Deeper was scheduled to release August 28, but will now launch September 11. The developer released the following statement:

“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.”

“As such, we have had to give ourselves a little more time to wrap up Issue #2 and the new release date for this update is September 11th, 2012.”

“We appreciate your understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience. We are definitely eager to get this update out the door so that you guys can finally get your hands on that awesome rocket launcher,” it added, promising to “get back on track as soon as possible.”

The Digging Deeper update will add a plastic surgeon, barbershop, new missions, and the game’s first auxiliary weapon–a rocket launcher.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
