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.
