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."

It always kills me that there is a whole generation of player that thinks of MMO gameplay as bear ass collecting and raids. No wonder everyone is bored with it.

I hear yeah, but the three alternatives mentioned, never got a large base to start with. As for this game, it's a mmo wait a couple months, see what's up. You can pretty much tell. Chances are this will be just like all the recent rest. The mmo story now is which one won't be the mmo that falls off largely after a couple of months.
