Funcom CEO Steps Down on Eve of The Secret World

GameSpot has word that Trond Arne Aas has stepped down as CEO of Funcom, noting the surreal timing of this coming on the eve of the launch of The Secret World, the Norwegian developer's latest MMORPG. For his part, Aas seems to think this is coming at the appropriate point: "The company's financial position is strong and the foundation of the company's long-term product and technology strategy is in place," Aas said. "It feels like a very natural point in time for me to make the transition to a new and freer role in the company, but I will remain committed to the Company both as a major shareholder and as an employee."

Timing is odd, to say the least. Stranger is that he references that he's still working in the company.

It's a shame that this will probably mar whatever little chance of success that the TSW launch could have had. I didn't really think it was going to be a big success, but I was hoping for a small one. The game is actually really fun. While the combat mechanics aren't too unique, the actual leveling aspect is fun, and I'm having a really enjoyable time doing their quests (Especially the research ones) and reading their lore.

Also, been playing the game since Friday, and haven't really had any major issues. Hit a bugged quest, but a GM replied in less than an hour and progressed the quest for me, and let me know it was a known issue.
