On the eve of The Secret World’s release, Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas has reportedly left the building.

According to Norwegian site E24, Aas will transition into a strategy advisor role, and will be replaced by current COO Ole Schreiner.

Aas told the site he’s not keen on the responsibility of the chief executive role, and is looking forward to a bit more freedom.

He also said that his role change isn’t “dramatic”, and noted that preparations are complete for tomorrow’s launch of MMO The Secret World.

Aas steered Funcom for nine years.
