Age of Conan dev Funcom is to drop 20 percent of its workforce, according to E24, resulting in a “significant delay” to upcoming MMO The Secret World.

The game had never been officially dated, but was expected in 2010.

The company employs around 300 staff, so 60 jobs look set to go.

Funcom’s currently in the process of relocating to Quebec and it’s debatable legal games-related tax breaks. It lost $34 million last year.

Thanks, GI and EG.
