Speaking to videogaming247, Age of Conan product manager Erling Ellingsen has said the recent reaction to an accidental breast nerf in the MMO left the company stunned.

“We were very surprised,” said the developer. “It’s just a bug, actually. We didn’t reduce the size of the breasts in intentionally. It was a side-effect of another bug we fixed. in the beginning, when people first started talking about it on the forums, we sort of laughed at it and said, ‘Well, we’re going to fix it, don’t worry.’ But then media from around the world started reporting this story and conspiracy theories were all around, saying that we had intentionally reduced breast sizes to reduce the amount of mature content in the game.

“But yes, we were very, very, very surprised. It only goes to show that that type of news is well-read, I guess.”

Certainly does, Erling. Virtual breasts and child-men, eh? Make the world go around.
