Speaking to MTV, Funcom product manager Jørgen Tharaldsen said that the surprise departure of company founder Gaute Godager this week is likely to bring more attention to Age of Conan of subscribers.

“I think that the fact that Gaute leaves means that we get a direction which is more player-centric, since [new game director Craig Morrison] is so good at being hands-on with the communities at all times,” he said.

“As we are now in a live phase with Conan that is really the only goal, you know: making sure our players are happy and have fun.”

Funcom announced Godager was the leave the firm on Wednesday as the exec had become “dissatisfied” with Age of Conan.
