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."

Story driven is fine if you can bang out the content fast enough. If not it's pointless.

I disagree. The more time and resources that these companies spend on the story component of their mmo, the higher the risk of failure. If they want to make a story driven game, stick with a single player game. It has already been proven that mixing the two doesn't work. It fails.

An mmo should be driven by the players. Period.
