It was so painful to see a studio that made one of my favorite adventure games ever focus only on MMORPGs... Every time I read something about The Secret World, I thought to myself "What a damn waste of talent".
It's a shame it has come to this but I can't say I don't feel a little schadenfreude for them abandoning one of my favorite franchises in favor of MMORPGs.
Which franshise, Dreamfall?? Thats actually coming back - there is going to be a Kickstarter for Dreamfall Chapters in the coming days/weeks.
In any case, dont be so assumptious of The Secret World, it is not a waste of talent at all and is quite possibly one of the biggest and strongest IPs for an MMO in recent years, the story, voice acting and cinematics is simply amazing for a MMO, the amount they can do with it - is unlimited. Combat isnt all that well but with a animation update in the next few months, thats resolved too.
And this restructuring doesnt at all affect the operation of the Secret World, it merely changes how Funcom itself operates.
