Age of Conan Director Leaves

GamesIndusty.biz reports that Gaute Godager has left Funcom, saying the producer and game director on Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures is acting on his dissatisfaction with some elements in the recently launched MMORPG. A follow-up post quotes Funcom's European product manager, Erling Ellingsen, who says Godager "wanted to take the consequence" of these aspects of AoC by leaving the company he co-founded 16 years ago. While Ellingsen declines to specifically identify these elements, he does offer insights into areas of dissatisfaction in his outlook on what this will mean to players of the MMORPG: "The first things will be that we are updating the PVP, we're adding new PVP features and that's something players have been requesting for months now, they've been screaming at us. Next new content will introduce new areas into the game, new quests, hours of more exploration and so on. That's two of the things we're working very hard on right now." The Age Of Conan: Hyborian Adventures Website has a full announcement that Godager's successor is Craig Morrison (once of IGN), who previously served as producer and game director for Anarchy Online. They quote Morrison on his mission: "I have a clear conviction I can lead the further development in a good way, evolving Age of Conan into something even better. My main priority now is therefore to listen to, and act on, player concerns, while ensuring we add additional great content to the game."
