Funcom has announced that their modern day MMO The Secret World has suffered a slight delay.

The game has been pushed back two weeks from June 19 to July 3, due to “market reasons.” “The new launch date places The Secret World in a more positive launch window which will benefit the launch of the game,” the developer added.

Early access now begins June 29. The final two beta weekends were also given official dates. Beta weekend three runs from June 15 until June 17 and weekend four runs from June 22 until June 24. If you pre-order the game you are guaranteed access to both of these events.
