Big-name MMO? Sizeable player base? Stock value dip of 55 percent? One of these things is not like the other. According to Massively, Age of Conan publisher Funcom has seen a mystifying downturn in its stock value since Age of Conan launched.

Dropping from $54 to $24 per share, you’d think Funcom would have serious cause for concern. However, as Massively points out, Funcom shares were sporting a consistent $25 price tag before the Age of Conan pre-release hype began. Odds are, this sharp drop is merely a return to normalcy.
