Funcom's Finances Investigated

Funcom is apparently being investigated by Norwegian authorities over possible financial irregularities, reports Rock, Paper, Shotgun, where they link to a report explaining what's going on with The Secret World developer. They say trading of the company's stock is once again underway after it was temporarily halted earlier today. Here's word on what's going down:

Økokrim (the Norwegian National authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime) has charged Funcom N.V. based on suspicion of infringement of the provisions of the Securities Trading Act with regards to the financial information given to the market regarding The Secret World from August 2011 until the launch of the game in July 2012 and the two months following the launch. In the view of Økokrim, there also exists a probability that the company has not maintained the required log of information within the company during that time.

The Company is fully cooperating with Økokrim.
