Funcom CEO resignation won't impact The Secret World

Creative direcxtor Ragnar Tørnquist has assured fans the resignation of Funcom CEO Trond Aas isn't bad news for fledgling MMO The Secret World.

"It won't affect The Secret World at all," Tørnquist told Massively.

"Trond Aas wanted to stay on as CEO until the game had launched, and he did so. It's still too early for us to tell how big a success TSW is, so his departure has absolutely nothing to do with that. Also, Trond is staying with the company in a different role, so it's not like anyone was fired or demoted.

"It has absolutely nothing to do with The Secret World, although Trond was an active participant in all discussions regarding the game before launch and played an instrumental role in ensuring that we shipped a great game on time."

Funcom announced earlier today that the MMORPG will soon begin receiving monthly content updates.
